Volunteer of the Month
“Thursdays have become my very favorite day of the week. It is the day that I volunteer at Heart to Heart and I have the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful and interesting clients and I get to work with the very best volunteers in the world. It is just such a joyous place to be no matter what is going on in the world or your world. You know that Heart to Heart will offer you kindness and calmness and a place to belong if only for a short time. I love to watch “it” happen to volunteers and clients alike when they come together to serve or be served. There is nothing like it! Lamar wants all of us to gain something positive from our time together. He encourages us to take the time to get to know clients and their families as we walk with them through the Heart to Heart grocery experience. Like magic clients often open up and we all feel better being together with a common purpose…listening and sharing.”
