A great source of life and vitality generated in our homes comes from our wonderful staff members and bands of volunteers. Each one brings not only his/her expertise in the running of the homes, but a marvellous friendly atmosphere. It is imperative that each one feels a part of the home --- to echo the words of Jeanne Jugan when speaking of those who helped her: “What could we do without you?” This phrase will never be extinct for the Little Sisters of the Poor.
Sharing in the family spirit established by our foundress we welcome the collaboration and support of people from all walks of life. The great network of Jeanne Jugan grows daily! So many ‘jobs’ need doing: driving an elderly person to the hospital for an appointment, serving at meal times, entertaining, baking, typing, washing up, or just a friendly chat … to mention but a few!
Would you like to share a little of your time as a volunteer with or for others and so make a difference in their lives? You would soon see that it would certainly make a difference in yours!
