Dr. Oliver Lugibihl,  one of many volunteers

The Mennonite Memorial Home and Maple Crest Senior Living Village honored their volunteers at a special reception March 30. The reception was held at The Mennonite Memorial Home chapel. Staff and residents took time to thank those who came for all they did throughout the year. Each volunteer received a gift bag to take home.

The Mennonite Memorial Home has over 250 volunteers working in different positions at the Home. These volunteers have logged in 3,917 hours at MMH. That's 75 hours a week that volunteers are giving to MMH, which is almost two full-time employees.

"We feel very blessed to have every minute that volunteers give. These volunteers have done a variety of jobs like, driving and transportation, mail delivery, providing organ and piano music, passing the shopping cart, hosting and assisting residents with meals, activities and more," said Julie Stratton of the Home. "There is also the Mobile Meals program which delivers hot, nutritious meals to people who are home bound. These volunteers delivered over 3,000 meals in 2009."

The Women's Service Group also volunteers in many areas throughout the Mennonite Home. They help with the annual soup supper, bake sales, special activities, birthday celebrations, and managing the vending machines.

Maple Crest has over 130 volunteers that help throughout the year and donated 1,574 hours. They volunteer in many areas such as: visiting new residents, helping with Birthday parties, playing games and calling bingo, serving at special events, assembling baby bags for the Bluffton Hospital, leading craft sessions, decorating the building, polishing finger nails, and many other things.

Persons interested in volunteering at either campus may call Mary Ann Ring at Mennonite Memorial Home, 419-358-1015 or Debbie Mohr at Maple Crest, 419-358-7654.
