In just three months she has become an incredibly dedicated and helpful volunteer. We chose Judi this month for her outstanding work volunteering for overnights. Judi, who had already completed many shifts in a short amount of time, graciously volunteered for overnights during Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and New Year’s Eve.
Something that Judi has learned through volunteering here is, “people just want to be treated with kindness and understanding. People have things to say and sometimes just listening is all I have to do”. The Guests are always very appreciative of her genuine interest, care, and contagious smile; they say that Judi goes above and beyond. One particular Guest said Judi saw her knitting one night; the next overnight, Judi arrived with much needed yarn and supplies to continue. The Guests look forward to an evening of movie watching, and a wonderful addition to breakfast the next morning.
We thank Judi not only for her persistence and dedication as a volunteer, but also for being a friend to many at LPCS!
