A Compassionate Army of Volunteers

Cancer Services mailing volunteers

Cancer Services would like to thank all of the individuals who volunteer their time to help us with our mailing projects. Yesterday, we began another distribution of our newsletter and more than 30 volunteers dedicated time to come and assist us with our mailing project.
Some of these volunteers are currently clients or have been touched by what we do here at Cancer Services. These individuals have a passion for volunteering and give back generously to their community. Besides helping with the newsletter distributions, these volunteers also help with mailing appeal letters, invitations to special events, client calendars and postcards.

Without these willing individuals, we would not be able to accomplish our mission to reach those in our community with cancer. What would most likely take days to finish without volunteers, takes about a day to a day and a half to finish for this army of volunteers.

“These volunteers are a joy to work with,” said Cancer Services volunteer coordinator, Cheryl Dafforn. “They come in and they’re happy. We have a good time. It’s a great time for the volunteers because they get to socialize and catch up with other volunteers who they haven’t seen in awhile.”

We would like to thank the following people for sacrificing their time to help us with this large mailing project: Patty Coats, Dorothy Stephanoff, Rose Pyle, Jane Green, Beth Damiano, Jenny Blauvelt, Janet Elsea, Sandy Drees, Vickie Lewis, Nancy Galuoppo, Carol Bordner, Clancy Neuhaus, Richard Laesch, Barb Servos, Katie Froebe, Betty Wynn, Connie Viterisi, Ina Mey Bice, Judith Forker, Diane Knueve, D.F. Brannon, Floyd Becker, Geri Becker, Pat Kramer, Liz Niday, David Singleton, Linda Balthaser, Tracy Rau and Kevin Dimke.
