February 6, 2014

As a senior who has dealt with his own mobility issues, Frank started volunteering for our organization in 2012, in order to help seniors and those living with disabilities get around. Frank has always been exceptionally compassionate, and willing to go the extra mile for anyone in need. When Frank started driving for us, we had a desperate call from a social worker at a local hospital, seeking help for a man that needed transportation to dialysis 3 times a week. Because the client lived in a spot that was not serviced by Handi-transit, he had no way to make it to his treatments, and was considering not going. Even though this client lived completely out of our area, Frank volunteered to take the man to every appointment. Frank also took the time to make sure the client was doing well by visiting with baked goods that he had proudly made himself. Frank has been one of our busiest volunteers in the past; often taking several clients around in one day. He is well known to our clients as kind and caring; many call Frank a good friend. Due to recent health difficulties, Frank has been hospitalized; yet even now he asks about how his regular clients are doing. We cannot think of a person more deserving of this award. We would like to nominate Frank Wade, as he is a truly amazing individual that deserves recognition and thanks for all that he has given to others.
