Volunteer of the Month

Our featured volunteer for the month of February is Dee Henricksen, who has volunteered more than 700 hours to Meals on Wheels People. Dee enjoys working with seniors and began volunteering at our Ambleside Center in Gresham after her husband passed away. Dee loves the people at the center. “They are so sweet and respectful. I enjoy serving them,” she said. The participants at the Ambleside Center have made Dee more compassionate. “Some of our clients have to work so hard to overcome obstacles and they do it. It’s inspiring.” Dee rarely turns down a volunteer request and has worked on a number of fundraising events, including volunteering for our Donate Dinner campaign every November. When not volunteering, Dee enjoys walking with her new puppy, meeting new people — and putting on snow boots and stomping through the snow! Thanks, Dee, for your unwavering commitment to older adults in Gresham and helping us change lives, one meal at a time!
