Is there an outstanding individual who volunteers their time to residents and team members in your Steeves & Rozema long-term care or retirement community? If so, today (March 15) is the last day to submit nominations for the Quest for Success award in the Volunteer Recognition category (and all other categories).

Steeves & Rozema will be hosting its annual Quest for Success awards presentation on April 25. Among the honours that will be presented during the evening is the Volunteer Recognition Award.

The Volunteer Recognition Award is given out annually to people who volunteer in a Steeves & Rozema community who work hard to provide a better place for residents to live and a better environment for staff members to work.

In 2018, the Volunteer Recognition Award was presented to Donna Elie. Donna was honoured for logging more than 2,200 volunteer hours since 2006 at Twin Lakes Terrace to help and support to the Sarnia long-term care and seniors living community in a variety of different ways.

Running Twin Lakes Terrace’s tuck shop, delivering mail and helping out with the breakfast clubs are among the duties Donna was recognized for.

“Donna is a very caring and loyal volunteer,” said life enrichment worker Julie Wardell in nominating Donna. “Not only does she volunteer out of the goodness of her heart at Twin Lakes Terrace, long-term care, she also finds time to volunteer at Twin Lakes Terrace, seniors living, as well as other organizations in the community. She does all of this without expecting anything in return.”

Another Twin Lakes Terrace volunteer, Mary Gilbert, received the award in 2017. Mary was honoured for being the “the face of bingo” at Twin Lakes for 12 years. A bingo caller on Wednesday afternoons, Mary also supported residents needing assistance during their much-loved bingo time.

Held annually in Sarnia, the Quest for Success awards night honours outstanding S&R team members and volunteers throughout the organization based on four areas: Above and Beyond, Community Service, Quality Improvement and Volunteer Recognition. There are also service awards handed out every year.

Quest for Success nomination forms are available from managers at Steeves & Rozema long-term care and seniors living communities.
