A Special Gift
The most unlikely of gifts can make a person’s day, and one of Mid-Cities Care Corps volunteers has proved just that! Charles, a client of Mid-Cities Care Corps, has been using our services for weekly treatments, and has formed a special bond with one of the volunteers named Joe. Both Joe and Charles are veterans and during the first ride, Joe noticed that Charles would be quite thirsty after his treatments. So next time Joe arrived for a drive, he handed Charles a special gift — a drinking tumbler with the Air Force insignia to carry along to quench his thirst during and after his treatment. Since then Charles has not been to a single appointment without his trusty tumbler, and this unlikely gift has helped form a bond between a client and volunteer. We are so thankful for volunteers like Joe that show compassion and kindness for the seniors that we serve.
