We asked Kaitlin a couple of questions about her time as RangeCare volunteer. Here is what she had to say;
What interested you in volunteering with RangeCare?
I was looking for work and had a bit of extra time to spare, and thought I’d look into volunteer opportunities as I have always valued giving back to the community. I saw RangeCare’s volunteer drivers advert on Facebook and thought it would be perfect for me. I have a grandmother who I am very close with who lives far away. As I can’t be there to drive her to appointments, I thought what better to do than be that person for someone else?
What do you enjoy about your role as a Volunteer Driver?
I love it. I get to meet with someone new on a regular basis, and be a part of the amazing services RangeCare has to offer. The volunteer team are very friendly and helpful, and the clients have been so wonderful and appreciative! It has been a pleasure to serve my community in this way and plan to continue to do so for as long as I can.
Why do you continue to volunteer with us?
I really enjoy being able to provide a one-on-one service to clients. Being able to connect with someone by making friendly conversation en-route to an appointment really makes my day. I feel refreshed and that I have a new sense of purpose by doing something that makes a difference in the lives of our community’s elders.
