This week's volunteer spotlight shines on Gary Waymire who is involved with the SHIBA program as Counselor/Caseworker.
Gary has been volunteering every Friday for 3 hours at Willow Park Assisted Living in Boise, providing casework and benefits counseling to many grateful clients since 2008.
Gary has also assisted in recruiting new volunteers and mentored new counselors by having them shadow his counseling sessions. Gary has been willing to extend his hours during the Annual Enrollment Periods and make home visits.
Gary is also diligent about his paperwork.
His volunteer coordinator, Karen Clark, deeply appreciates his dedication, professionalism, sense of humor and willingness to go above and beyond in times of need.
Watch this space for monthly changes to our Volunteer in the Spotlight. If you would like to nominate someone to be a volunteer in the spotlight, submit your nomination to your volunteer coordinator, giving the name of the volunteer and why you think he or she deserves to be in the spotlight.
