Volunteer Spotlights: Terri Faure and Dee Riley

“I retired early a few years ago. I found that I had time on my hands and I had a desire to use that time to help others. Dee and I have been friends for a few years and we decided to do this together. Working at CARES center on Tuesday afternoons fit our schedule perfectly. I appreciate what the CARES store does for its clients and the work we do there. I enjoy meeting the clients and other volunteers. What I did not anticipate is how much volunteering would help me. I’ve had some health challenges this year and working at CARES has provided me with some time to forget those challenges and bring some normalcy to my life.”

“I have been retired for several years and always found volunteering to be very fulfilling.

So, when the opportunity to volunteer for ACO came about, my friend Terri and I decided to attend the meeting. The ACO Cares Center sounded like a good fit and the 3 hour shift every Tuesday worked for both of us.

It is such a good feeling to sacrifice your time for a worthy cause and the Cares Center has done that for me. I love working with the fellow volunteers and helping the clients that visit the Center.”
