What Sabres Volunteer?
November 14, 2018
We all chose to spend our free time in different ways whether we hang out with friends, go shopping, hunting or hit the movie theater. As for these Sabres, they spend their free time a little differently.
Our first volunteer in the community is Reagan Vonderahe. She spends her extra time Volunteering at the St. Cloud Hospital. Her duties can vary from day to day but some of her jobs include bringing snacks to new mothers in the birthing unit or cleaning blood pressure cuffs for surgery patients. She started volunteering a little over a year ago, and she loves it. Volunteering is important to her because it gives her an inside look at the medical field which is a potential career for her later on in life. She also thinks that she is making an impact on the community. She says that she helps those who are most in need and helps them feel comforted.
Another volunteer in the Sabre community is Kathleen Harthan. Kathleen spends her Sundays volunteering at her local church, Celebration Lutheran, teaching Sunday school. She started volunteering here in 8th grade, working with elementary school students supervising them while they make crafts along with reading and singing Bible songs and stories. She feels like she is making an impact with the church and the children, but it is also important to her to be involved with her church.
Lauren Lindmeier Volunteers at Country Manor, which is a retirement community in Sartell. She started volunteering there in 8th grade. Now as a senior, her jobs there include helping with the activity of the day. Some of those activities include bingo, reading stories aloud, tea parties, and board games. Lauren thinks volunteering is important because she gets to help other and for no other reason than for their benefit. She believes that she can slowly make the world a little better. She also enjoys talking one on one with the residents, and they often comment on how much they enjoy the company.
Stefanie Marstein is another Sabre volunteering her time in the community. She spends her free time helping the Tri-County Humane Society. She has been helping out there since January of 2018. She helps take care of the animals, picks up after them, washes and folds laundry, and she also washes and dries dishes. Volunteering at the humane society is important to her because she likes helping with animals without homes and making sure they receive love and care. She also believes she is making an impact because there is so much chaos that goes on with how many animals they give shelter too that there is a lot that needs to get done. When she is volunteering, she thinks she is helping take away the chaos that comes with everything.
