Volunteer Profile : Donna O'Field
Donna has been volunteering with us for over a year now, and is truly a special lady. The care receivers she works with nearly always call after spending time with her to let us know how kind she has been and how much they enjoy her company. We are so lucky to have her on our side. And as if all that goodness wasn't enough, she has the most joyful laugh of anyone we know!
She recently answered a few questions for us...
What inspires you?
Living and loving my life each day.
How did you get involved with FIAGKV?
Jennifer came to speak at a Silver Sneakers luncheon at the YMCA.
Can you share your most enjoyable/challenging/rewarding/memorable FIAGKV volunteer experience to date?
Taking a care receiver to her doctor one week and then learning she'd passed away suddenly the next. So devastating!
What would you tell someone thinking of becoming an FIAGKV volunteer?
Go for it! You will feel better and get more out of it than the person you are helping.
What other organizations or causes do you support?
The animal shelter.
Finally...with a nod to Sweet Charity...what's your favorite dessert or sweet treat?
Hot chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream!
