Working with good people

What I most enjoy about being a volunteer driver is knowing I am doing something meaningful to help. They (clients) may not have another way. I enjoy our chats while we ride, and the smiles and thanks are worth it all.
-RSVP Volunteer Driver

Being a Foster Grandparent means I am with peers again, I'm needed, and it connects me to the community. It is a very gratifying feeling to be able to help children learn and to be better human beings.
-Green Mountain Foster Grandparent

I am more active and look forward to getting out of the house and meeting the Bone Builders group. I see how everyone is getting along. I am trying to make exercising less work, not as much effort, easier, but still fun. The camaraderie, laughter, etc. You are doing good work and we appreciate it. Thank you.
