To the editor:
I should have written this sooner, when Joyce Powell-Morin had her letter in The Chronicle about being an MCMC volunteer.
I have been a volunteer at MCMC for the past seven years. I have really enjoyed it. I visit with my friends and neighbors who are in the hospital.
If I wasn’t a volunteer, I would not have known they were there. MCMC treats their volunteers real well. I also have a great feeling of gratitude when I am finished for the day.
Also, if you have more time on your hands and like working with children, consider working with SMART. The reading program works with grades one to three, one hour a week, or more if you like. It’s one-to-one reading to children. Call Mike Wacker at 541-298-2432.
I love volunteering. It has greatly enriched my life. It will yours, too. Please join us.
