Hilltop Health Care Center hosted a lunch Wednesday, April 24, at Wally’s Café in Watkins to celebrate their 55 senior volunteers. This corps of individuals serve a number of roles at the residential facility, and they put in around 2,500 volunteer hours in the past year (the equivalent of a full-time employee). Susan Schneider is the volunteer coordinator, and she oversees these senior volunteers as well as junior volunteers who are school-age.
Volunteers come from much the same communities as do residents. Many are from the immediate Watkins area, but some come from farther away.
Thank you to all who volunteer!
