    Dave Kenow  - Auxiliary volunteer

    "Sometimes I just give a simple 'good morning' to a guest, and other times they stop for a short conversation. I’m able to assist those with questions and hopefully make their morning go smoother. Regardless of the interaction, I know the service I provide gives them comfort from the moment they enter the building. They know we’re here to help."
