Never too old to volunteer

Yesterday we had a group of people who were associated with Martin Luther King Day Governor's Commission volunteering at Second Harvest Heartland. They, along with a few other volunteers bagged over 7,000 pounds of potatoes during their three hour shift.  One of the participants had her mother join us, who had recently traveled up from New Orleans.  She was 95 years old.

It was amazing to visit with this lovely lady who still had a thirst for travel and learning about others from around the world.  I was inspired by her curiosity, positive attitude and willingness to help others.
