Bob Fallon, Julie Hicks, and Diana Arnold are York County Area Agency on Aging’s Volunteers of the Month for their ongoing service and dedication to the agency and York County’s older adults.
Fallon, of York city, volunteers as a financial counselor and in the special events programs. Fallon finds great satisfaction in helping others without expecting anything in return, and his family is supportive as well.
“If you are looking for a sense of self-fulfillment, share your talents,” Fallon said. “You’ll receive so much more than you give, and it’ll make you a better person.”
Hicks, of Dallastown Borough, volunteers in a variety of opportunities, including general office assistant, deliveries, and special events. Hicks feels it is important to volunteer and contribute to a worthwhile cause or organization.
“Since volunteering, I have found that it’s rewarding to see the smiles and appreciation on the faces of the seniors whom I am helping. It makes what I do extremely satisfying,” Hicks said.
Arnold, of York Township, volunteers as a Matter of Balance coach after a long career as a registered nurse. Arnold believes that her skills are a good fit and this is a way to give back to the community.
“Volunteering in the community has physical and emotional benefits for people,” Arnold said. “It gives purpose to your life.”
