Volunteer of the Month: Carol Whirley

Hometown: Brainerd

Family: Husband Brad

Volunteer Activities: Good Samaritan Birchwood House (visits with residents, take them shopping, prepare table for meals, helps with b-day parties, bingo, and where ever needed), also is a family event photographer – Carol takes photos and then puts them together in a presentation.

I volunteer because: I feel it is a gift that God has given me, I totally love the elderly.

My most rewarding volunteer experience is or has been: Seeing the smiles on the resident’s faces and experiencing the joy of when we are together.

Nominated by: Tina Dunlap, Volunteer Coordinator Good Samaritan Society Woodland.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
