Salute to Senior Service Winner

Jun 11, 2013 09:56PM ● By Anonymous

June Yeich is being recognized for her dedicated community service, including her work at Coastal Hospice. Her focus is using her time, energy and talents to help hospice patients and their families, but she also enjoys supporting the organization by manning health fair booths, volunteering at fundraisers and volunteering at the hospice thrift shop.

As one of 50 state winners, Yeich earned $500 for her charity of choice – donated by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network and contest sponsor. Yeich also will have a spot on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame on SalutetoSeniorService.com where her nomination story has been posted. As a state winner, Yeich now will be considered for the national Salute to Senior Service award.

The Salute to Senior Service program was launched last year by the Home Instead Senior Care network to honor seniors’ commitments to their causes and communities.

“June represents so well the dedication and commitment that make senior volunteers such a value to their communities,” said Jeff Huber, president of Home Instead, Inc. “She has proven once again that age is meaningless when it comes to making a difference. So many charities, nonprofit organizations and faith communities could not do the work they are doing without selfless volunteers such as June.”
