Assets In Action: Volunteers are gems of community

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

I will start by thanking those that volunteer to make the Assets In Action program flow.
My family does everything from technical items to loading up the vehicles from collecting canned goods for the March on Hunger.
My Cookies and Conversation volunteers are awesome and spend time at both Los Alamos High School and Los Alamos Middle School talking to youth about fun topics. Yesterday the youth may have heard what prom was like, back in their day.
The RSVP program at the Betty Ehart Senior Center is where I get most of my seniors from including award winning Kiwanians Don Casperson and Morrie Pongratz.
Irene Powell calls my volunteers, makes sure the bus picks them up and delivers them and more.
Irene’s volunteers donated more than 18,000 hours of service to our community last year to a number of nonprofit stations from education, to visitor’s center greeters and the lovely folks that answer the phone when you call.
Irene and her husband David are also fully trained to head up an emergency shelter for us, should this fire season demand one.
A special salute to Chamisa sixth graders, alumni and teachers that staffed the dunk tank last weekend to raise money to improve the school.
Also, thanks to student Council for working to collect canned goods again this month, to help those in need.
