Volunteer Highlight: Alice Bennett
Alice Bennett is a native Houstonian selflessly committed to helping others through multiple charities. She actually found the Living Legacy Center through her work with another charity.
How did you discover the Living Legacy Center?
My other charity is the Cy-Fair Women's Club
]. In February 2022 they assigned me the task of performing due diligence on the Living Legacy Center. After I interviewed Elizabeth Hilbun and Teresa Trull, the Cy-Fair Women's Club awarded the Living Legacy Center a one thousand dollar donation. Afterward I asked Elizabeth and Teresa if they needed a volunteer, and the next month I began volunteering two days a week with them.
What do you do for the Living Legacy Center?
I get clients connected to helpful resources, drive clients to appointments, serve at events, and craft items for raffles. Elizabeth, Teresa, and Birgit have been helpful in sharing valuable information about other charities in our areas. I also help with the community garden and collecting items for donation to other charities.
What have you learned during your time as a volunteer?
By serving the needs of others I find myself continuing to learn the of different challenges that individuals face. We can continue to help more individuals if we keep reaching out. In turn I have learned to appreciate my life and how to care for my family as senior citizens.
