What inspired you to start volunteering with LCCC?
“I have always been a volunteer, whether it was Relay for Life, blood drives, or helping with church activities. I am especially active with LCCC since I had been on the Board of Directors for nine years. During that time I had discovered all the things LCCC is actively doing in the community. Once I retired from General Motors in 2015 I began volunteering more with LCCC.”
What volunteer role do you fill?
“Currently I provide transportation for people who need rides for doctor appointments, buying groceries, hair appointments, banking or just running errands. I also help with the Christmas baskets, both in stuffing and delivering the baskets to the needy. I also serve on the Fund Development committee for LCCC.”
What personal value do you get from the experience?
“It is said it's better to give then receive. I enjoy giving myself to the people that need help or assistance. Since I am retired it also gets me out of the house.”
