ALRSD Thrift Shop “Fabulous Finds” Presents:

Volunteer Corner

Linda Kermott – Volunteer of the Year 2022 – 2023

Linda cares deeply about ALRSD and our members.  She is always thinking of the needs and feelings of others and makes every effort to reach out when an extra “touch” is appreciated.  She is kind, thoughtful, precious, humble, approachable and gladly helps when asked, making her a reliable team player.

She has worked very hard this year to increase membership.  This requires lots of organization, follow-up, documentation and caring to reach out and bring everyone together to spotlight ALRSD as the organization we all love.  She is always looking for ways to improve training and ways to keep members involved and feeling good about their contribution to AL and the community.

Not only has she done a terrific job this year, but has been very active in past years.  She founded and chaired “Flowers for Seniors” for at least two years, was chair of the Hospitality Committee, and organized our annual fundraiser. We are lucky to have her!

Linda is happy to help with everything and anything—she has worked with Assisteens, Springtime in, Paris, and new member luncheon—and loves it all!

Linda Kermott exemplifies the true meaning of Volunteer of the Year for our chapter of Assistance League. She inspires me and others every day in her extraordinary efforts to achieve our goals and mission in transforming the lives of children and adults through our community program
