Volunteer Spotlight

As Christmas and Hanukkah approach and we prepare for the holidays, we fondly remember our family and loved ones; how they have touched our lives with their kindness and made a difference. Sometimes, even the smallest gestures – warming our hearts; making us feel safe, loved and comforted ‘at home’ are all appreciated.

We have some very special Volunteers that regularly pour their hearts into soups, stews and their favorite homemade dishes and deliver that same kind of love to our Residents, families and friends. These delicious foods add to our home‐like family feeling that bring us together every day of the year. To our behind‐the‐scenes Volunteer bakers and chefs – we are truly grateful.
