Volunteer Week Spotlight: Debbie Carpenter, All-Around Asset

Debbie works with our Fund Development team, helping us out with our online donor database, with mailings, and with other office work. Catini, her Dementia Society supervisor, says she is "simply awesome". Debbie wrote a nice letter which we are sharing with you here:

"After retiring I started volunteering at the Dementia Society in 2016.

During this time I have met or spoken to wonderful participants in some of the programs offered by the Society.

I have met and worked with a terrific group of staff who have different responsibilities. All are dedicated to the community and offer support and education to those diagnosed with dementia and their caregivers. 

It has been a privilege to meet and work with other volunteers here.  We have had some great conversations and fun too.

My mother had Alzheimer’s and I truly understand how valuable it is to have the different types of support offered by the Dementia Society.

I enjoy volunteering here and being part of the team."

We enjoy having Debbie as part of our team, and we thank her for all the work she has done for us over the years!
