Q Where do you volunteer?

A “I volunteer at Goodwill and the civic center. I’ve been at Goodwill for 10 years.”

Q What do you do at Goodwill?

A “I pull stuff off the shelves with the expiration color. Some of it goes to other stores and some of it goes on clearance.. Sometimes I work in the back.”

Q What do you do at the Senior Center?

A “I help serve the meals in the kitchen. I’m usually the dessert person. People like it. I wear a hat so I don’t have to wear a hair net. I play bingo in the morning. We have different callers.”
