Volunteer Spotlight

Michele McFarland before the pandemic could be found visiting residents at The Village at Sprenkle Drive. Michele has been a volunteer for two years and was a regular friendly visitor. Michele says, “When I visit with residents I not only brighten their day, but they also brighten my day and I always leave feeling fulfilled.” Michele has made friendly phone calls and sent notes of encouragement to residents throughout the pandemic.

 

Ruth Howsden, life enrichment volunteer at The Village at Utz Terrace

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ruth continued volunteering virtually by providing weekly, stimulating crossword and word puzzles handouts. At Christmas, she assembled booklets of her puzzles and sent them to her neighbors in lieu of Christmas cards. Ruth never wavered on how she could still help enrich the lives of our residents.
