“I am delighted that we have such a wonderful group of dedicated volunteers who make a difference in our county,” said Senior Advocate Debbie Leidheiser. “Whether it is checking on older adults who live alone, supporting grandparents raising their grandchildren, reading to students at a local elementary school or working for the disabled in our community, they are reaching out to make someone’s life a little better.”
