a samaritan volunteer with many roles
Fran, who recently retired after more than 45 years as a librarian, started volunteering in Samaritan’s development office about a year ago and has become a beloved and valuable member of the entire team. She is responsible for managing our donations and thanking our donors. And, after only a short time here, she wanted to do more. So, she asked to also be a food pantry volunteer, bagging food for members.
No matter what role she plays, she goes out of her way to learn about our members and forge a bond with them.
“I have gotten such joy from getting to know our wonderful members. They handle so many challenges in our food pantry and development office with such grace, and are so warm and engaging,” says Fran. “I’m glad I found this special place.”
And everyone at Samaritan is glad Fran, and all of our volunteers, found us too!
