Katie Herron has been a dedicated volunteer here at McKendree for 4 years. Katie helps with activities in the health center such as bingo, and other games. Persons in our long term facility look so forward to having fun activiites to participate in and Katie takes on these activities with compassion and care. Katie also visits residents in the health center who might not have regular visitors. She is never in a hurry and always has a kind word for everyone. Katie also helps with mail delivery to the residents of the health center and she works 2 shifts in the gift shop at McKendree Village. The gift shop serves residents who are not able to get out and shop. Katie got involved at McKendree when her daughter Pat got hired as an activities coordinator in the health center. Katie enjoys her volunteer work here at McKendree because she loves helping people. Her volunteer service directly impacts our health center residents. Some of these residents do not have frequent visitors and they really light up when Katie enters the room. She is kind, compassionate and caring. Katie impacts our residents every single time she is here and gives a kind word, or spends time with someone who is in the long term care facility. Our residents look forward to bingo and Katie is such a blessing to do this activity with our residents. We are very lucky to have Katie as a valued volunteer here at McKendree.
