This week's volunteer spotlight shines on Elizabeth A Martinez who is involved with the SHIBA program as Counselor.
Betty was looking for a volunteer position when she went to the Retired Senior Volunteer Program in Nampa and became interested in the SHIBA Program. She has been doing a wonderful, compassionate job for the SHIBA Program since 2001 counseling in Canyon County.
Betty convinced her Spanish-speaking husband that he also should become a volunteer counselor for SHIBA, which he did. Both Betty and Andy were with us during the enactment of the Medicare prescription drug program in 2006.
Betty and Andy have made visits to homebound clients. Andy has retired, but will still interpret for Betty when the need arises. I deeply appreciate all Andy has done for SHIBA clients and look forward to continuing to work with Betty!
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.
