Phyllis worked for 36 years as an Executive Secretary at a local hospital. When she retired, she wanted to stay productive and give back to her community. For the past five years, she has been volunteering for an organization called Volunteers in Medicine, Inc. where she works eight hours a week at the local clinic. She then works another 10-20 hours a month writing grants for the organization.

Phyllis also volunteers six hours a week in her church office, where she has been answering the phone and taking care of any overflow administrative work for nearly two years.

As if that isn't enough, Phyllis has volunteered the past four months of her time making all of the reference calls for potential CAREGivers at our local Home Instead Senior Care office.

She is an amazing woman who truly enjoys giving to others, and never asks for anything in return.
