Alex Eigen is youth Volunteer of the Month

Alex Eigen

Hometown: Nisswa

Family: Parents – Shelley and Dan, 1 Brother and 1 Sister

Volunteer activities: Essentia Health where I fill ice water and visit with patients and whatever is needed. I also help with the Mission Tip to Guatemala and El Salvador with the Heritage Assembly of God and I work in the nursery at Lakewood Evangelical Free Church.

I volunteer because: I feel a sense of accomplishment and I give back to the community. I also find it very humbling.

My most rewarding volunteer experience is or has been: The people I meet, one day I sat and talked to a patient who was a sweet older lady and she gave me advice that I can use for the rest of my life.

Nominated by: Deb Anderson, Essentia Health

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.
