I became a volunteer for 100 hours, but continued to contribute my time. I translate for patients. I enjoy working with people with strokes on the rehab unit.”Linda Huang “My daughter was in the hospital five years ago. Her surgery was very successful and I felt a lot of love from the staff.

I enjoy the people and the young doctors and nurses that  use the library where I work. They keep me young.”Jean Banthos “I’m a retired former secretary and the reason I volunteer is that if you want to get something out of your community you have to put something into it.
