Why I Volunteer - Joan Luke
By Joan Luke
Adult Volunteer, Shuttle Service
As long as I can remember I wanted to be a nurse and serve people. After
graduating, I went on to do just that. As a child I was taught in church
that it is a privilege and honor to serve others.
My wonderful neighbor is such an example of service to others and is a
volunteer at PVHMC. She encouraged me to volunteer when I retired and
I did just that. I love the staff and guests, and I feel I receive more
than I give. I suppose that’s selfishness on my part!
I look forward to seeing the children’s eyes light up when they ride
in the shuttle and compare it to a Disney ride, or the delight of a person
who is struggling to walk when I offer them a ride, or directing guests
when they’re lost.
Those experiences are priceless.
