State Farm has been a wonderful partner for the Cache Valley Volunteer Center and TEAM Mentoring this year. They have provided a couple of key grants that have made it possible for us to keep the TEAM Mentoring program going strong. I’m not sure we would have survived some our challenges without their support, but the State Farm funding has been helped TEAM to become strong and vibrant.
Through the Youth in the Driver’s Seat grant our youth have had a year-long focus on safe driving. Beginning with Celebrate My Drive in the Fall, a safe driving themed entry at the North Logan Pumpkin Walk, a safe driving themed gingerbread house display, and a whole lot more leading up to the upcoming safe driving rally.
In addition, a State Farm corporate grant provided a much-needed base for the career readiness, college prep component of the program.
We are also grateful to the local State Farm agents who helped us with the Celebrate My Drive! efforts last Fall, and will be helping to run the activity booths at the safe driving rally: Rigo, Chapparo, Tyson Luthi, Lana Powell, and Mark Weese.
THANK YOU, STATE FARM!!
We couldn’t do what we do without your support!
Rita is a hardworking, loyal, caring and compassionate volunteer that has put in countless hours over the past year as a senior companion to a number of local seniors seeking services through BRAG’s Senior Companion program. She shows she cares by being sensitive to people’s needs and serving in any capacity that is required of her. She lends a listening ear, a helping hand and a giving heart to those needing a friend to talk to, a ride to the grocery store, doctor appointment, or pharmacy; or maybe a companion for an outing to church or a lunch date.
Rita shares her flower starts, garden produce, knitting knowledge and even a hat, a pair of socks or even a sweater she has knitted with many a friend, neighbor or Senior Companion. She smiles with happiness when the neighbor children call her grandma, when a companion she visits with remembers and shares with her something they used to do long ago or starts talking when they haven’t been very vocal for awhile.
To Rita, volunteering has become almost a full tie job. She visits clients two to three times a day almost five days a week. She thinks more people should involved with volunteering in our community if they are capable; instead of staying at home doing nothing. She should know, she’s 80 years old herself and is still busy making a difference every day to those she comes in contact with. I just love her positive attitude and can-do spirit. That is why I would like to nominate her as the Cache Valley Volunteer Center’s Volunteer of the Month.

During the short time that Bailey has been volunteering at the Cache Humane Society she has become a valuable member of our team. Bailey volunteers in our clinic, and as such deals with the animals medical needs, rather than taking dogs for walks, or playing with the cats. Bailey helps in keeping the clinic clean and sanitized, she is a self starter and never complains. No matter the task that she is asked to accomplish, she works hard and completes these tasks in a very timely and thorough manner. It is with great pleasure that I nominate Baily for Volunteer of the Month.
