A Volunteer's Story -- Joanne Mier
"My sorority sister, Mary Anne Lachenmaier and I (Joanne Mier) were lucky enough to meet Cathleen Hartman in the fall of 2019 and learn all about ElderTLC. In June of 2020 we contacted Cathleen to see if our Phoenix Delta Gamma Alumnae chapter members could provide art supplies for ElderTLC’s Holiday Shop. Our sisters gave generously, enough to fill 2 cars with loads of art supplies. While delivering these items we let Cathleen know we’d be happy to help if she needed more volunteers to complete orders. As it turned out between the 2 of us, we gave ElderTLC 33 hours. It was fun to meet other volunteers, get to know the founders of ElderTLC and learn even more about their mission. We found the time spent gathering specific gifts, wrapping them, then packing in boxes for the receiving centers was very heartwarming. This is such a worthwhile organization. Hopefully Delta Gamma can participate again for 2021!"
