Why do you choose to volunteer with Hospice of the Red River Valley?
I decided to volunteer for Hospice of the Red River Valley when I saw first-hand the wonderful services Hospice provided for my husband when he was terminally ill with cancer. I found out the organization relies heavily on volunteers, so it was a way to give something back.

As a volunteer for Hospice of the Red River Valley, what types of activities do you participate in?
I fill in as a volunteer courier sometimes, delivering supplies and medications, and I enjoy meeting a lot of the families. They are so appreciative of the services provided. I also greet guests at the reception desk in the Fargo office. I enjoy meeting HRRV staff and community people who stop by the office.

What is your favorite hobby?
I love attending all my grandkids’ school activities and sporting events.
