Della B.

Milwaukee, WI

Volunteered for:

Jewish Home & Care Center

Length of Service:

80+ hours per month for 22 years

February 25, 2014

This spunky 92 year old lady drives at least 12 miles (one way) almost every day to run the gift shop at the nursing home. Not only does she know of every bauble, bangle or toy...she demonstrates them as well. In addition, she is the one that goes to trade shows and purchases all the items sold in the store.

Della is so uplifting that very few people leave the store without purchasing something. Her choices put smiles on so many residents and their guests. It's a win win situation with Della at the helm...she is in her element and everyone loves her!
