Volunteer spotlight

C-Mar 2023-Volunteer Spotlight

Dorothy Bagan

Dorothy Bagan is our wonderful and caring volunteer who has been with Unison at Kerby Centre since February of 2022. “My son wanted me to do something meaningful with my spare time! He researched Kerby and thought it was a perfect fit for me. So, I was introduced to the Kerby Centre, and the rest is history!” Dorothy volunteers in the Wise Owl Boutique twice a week, as well as serving at events. She also participates in the community kitchen program and serves as a tour guide when needed.

When asked what keeps her coming back to volunteer, Dorothy, said “It’s like an addiction – the more I volunteer, the more it becomes a part of my life! It gives me purpose and great satisfaction!” She most enjoys, “the people, the other volunteers, and the programs Kerby offers! It’s become my home away from home! It gives me direction and fulfills my life!”

Dorothy’s hobbies include cooking, walking, and going to the theatre. She said, “I love to play board games as well!” While she did mention a favourite vacation, Dorothy’s answer to what makes her smile is worth including here. She wrote, “Every morning when I wake up and see my face in the mirror, I smile! When I meet new people, I smile! When I accomplish a new task, I smile! When I volunteer at Kerby, I smile! When I eat a new dish I’ve cooked, I smile! At the end of a productive day, I smile! When I walk through the doors at Kerby Centre, I smile!” So far, Dorothy has contributed over 403 hours. Thank-you, Dorothy, for all you do for the Kerby Centre!
