When we think about people who inspire us in our life, our very own Ruth immediately pops to mind. A young in heart and young in spirit 81 year old, Ruth has been a volunteer with us for the past 18 years. She also has been an integral member of our staff as our Assistant to Manager of Volunteers for the past 15 years.
Ruth’s caring puts our care receivers immediately at ease and they know someone will go above and beyond to help them. Our volunteers love her and are so glad when they finally get to meet her in person. We are so lucky to know Ruth and count her as our friend and trusted colleague.

♥ Want to make Ruth smile – give her a good book to read or a jigsaw puzzle. Just make sure you have Mounds Candy Bars on hand and homemade (no store or restaurant bought allowed!) Fried Chicken
