LeAnn volunteers in Home Delivered Meals. She delivers meals to homebound seniors on Tuesdays, assists in the Home Delivered Meals office on Thursdays and substitutes whenever needed. She helps without being asked, whenever and wherever she sees her help is needed. LeAnn is the first to look at the calendar and put her name down to substitute. LeAnn is always smiling and takes pride in the tasks she performs. She is courteous and very friendly with other volunteers and anyone who approaches her. LeAnn treats her volunteerism with true professionalism and dedication. She is also very empathetic with clients. She communicates with staff about clients’ needs and her observations. She shows interest in the well being of her clients and the clients appreciate her concern. She is an outstanding volunteer and will be missed when she moves to North Carolina next year. Already, she is planning to volunteer there for a Meals on Wheels program.
