Oklahoma Senior Volunteer of the Year
Our volunteers do amazing things, and it's very rewarding when they get recognized for their hard work.
Martha King is one of those dedicated community servants who has a true heart for helping others. So it was no surprise to us that she was recognized by Home Instead Senior Care as the recipient of the 2013 Salute to Senior Service award. With the award, Martha was given $500 to donate to the charity of her choice. She will now be entered into a national contest as Oklahoma's representative, and will have the chance to win $5000 for her charity.
Martha's community service has been a lifelong commitment. She served as the executive director of another nonprofit, Neighbor for Neighbor, in the 1980s, and then worked for World Neighbor until she retired.
After retirement, she came to us as a volunteer. She interacts so beautifully with the babies and toddlers as well as the staff and other volunteers.
"I enjoy the atmosphere and the culture of Infant Crisis Services the most." Martha said about volunteering, "Positive interactions with staff and other volunteers and seeing the sweet babies keeps me coming back."
We are honored and grateful for Martha's commitment to her community and to our babies and toddlers. This award is well deserved!
