Nominated by Melanie Guy

Volunteered for:

The Denise House/Sedna Women's Shelter & Support Services Inc.

Length of Service:

25 hours per month for 24 years

January 29, 2014

The Denise House is a shelter for abused women and their children in Durham Region. Florence has been volunteering with us for 24 years and has provided assistance in a variety of areas. Weekly, Florence volunteers at our Donation Centre supporting the women and children from the shelter in obtaining needed items, assisting them to remain independent and free of abuse. Florence has also spent many hours in the community, representing the shelter at various events, including the White Ribbon Campaign gate collection at OPG which includes being up and at the location by 6 am! Whatever Florence does, whether it is spending time in the community or at the donation centre, she always ensures that she greets everyone with a smile and a warm hello, and most often a hug too. When she is not busy with us at The Denise House, Florence also volunteers with the Oshawa Navy Club in collecting food and clothing for the needy and looking after senior members and veterans. She also is a member of the Red Hat Society and volunteers with them at the Port Hope Nursing Home. We are thrilled to have Florence on our Volunteer Team at the Denise House and are happy to nominate her for a much-deserved award!
