Why I Volunteer: Meet Don
Don Taylor - Volunteer Since 2012
Don and his pal Rick have been instrumental in providing maintenance support to the Alzheimer Society of Oxford.
“I have found myself in the fortunate position that I have the opportunity to give back. Anyone who volunteers knows how rewarding it can be! If there’s anywhere locally that I can apply skills I have learned over the years to help others out, I am happy to volunteer.”
When asked what he enjoys most about volunteering with the Alzheimer Society, Don shared, “I really like the staff and very much value the work they do. I am pleased to be a part of who they are and what they do.”
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, Don was asked if he’s found himself continuing to volunteer his time in some way within his community or close network of friends or family. “It is a very frustrating time to be a volunteer. I was lucky to find a small wheelchair ramp project and remain isolated, but those opportunities seem few and far between.”
Don, thank you for the many ways you give your time and skills to serve the Alzheimer Society of Oxford and your community at large! We’re so grateful!
