Volunteer of the Month, December 2016
Tell us about your volunteering.
Vickie's Angel Foundation helps families fighting cancer who are having financial difficulties paying their bills. We take away that worry to let them focus on getting well. We hold an annual walk in New Cumberland every October, as well as various fundraisers throughout the year.
Of all the charitable organizations out there, what is it about Vickie's Angel Foundation that compels you to volunteer?
One hundred percent of the money raised goes to the families for everyday needs. rent, heating bills, groceries and insurance copays are a few examples. It all stays within the Central Pennsylvania community.
Alive or dead, name one person that would like to have lunch with. Why?
Oprah Winfrey – she has inspired me to live with gratitude, and she can bring some of her "favorite things."
