Picture a volunteer who has committed to spending time with two gentlemen clients (separately) once per week, volunteering at the Foodbank with one gentleman and taking the other to Tim Horton’s for a weekly and much-loved treat. This is already an amazing volunteer success story, a dream come true for any organization. Now, picture that same volunteer who wholeheartedly supports his client friend by acting as a pallbearer at the client’s wife’s funeral. Now that is friendship, genuine and supportive friendship.
