About six years.
How did you get involved with DOROT?
My daughter's school made a visit to DOROT and my daughters and I were keen to learn more about volunteering after that.
What type of volunteer activities do you do at DOROT?
I have helped seniors with groceries, delivered care packages and accompanied seniors to doctor's appointments.
In what ways has your DOROT volunteer experience impacted your life?
I think that with DOROT, giving is ultimately more fulfilling than receiving. I have met some amazing, inspirational seniors.
What motivates you to continue volunteering at DOROT?
I enjoy hearing about the experiences of the seniors first hand. It is like a history lesson that come to life sometimes.
Most memorable volunteer moment
My daughters and I were very inspired to talk to one lady who had been the only female in her law class at college.
What would you want other volunteers to know about volunteering at DOROT?
I know that volunteering, even for a small amount of time can positively impact a homebound senior's day and also your own.
