REM Award Honorees (2014) — Florence Donovan (Hospice Volunteers)

Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area is pleased to honor Florence Donovan as its REM Award honoree this year.

Florence has been volunteering since she was a girl. She went door to door in her Winslow Neighborhood to collect for the American Cancer Society, and she and her friends operated a lemonade stand donating the proceeds to Thayer Hospital for children’s books. More recently, Florence has volunteered for the Canaan Fire and Rescue Auxiliary for the past thirteen years raising money for needed supplies.

Florence is giving and caring and always willing to step in and lend a hand wherever she is needed. She feels that she receives more than she gives. Florence believes that she owes much of who she is to her mother who raised her children alone.

Florence states that volunteering at the Hospice Resale Shop is personally rewarding. She believes that the volunteers are a wonderful group of people. She looks forward to our volunteer gatherings and is always willing to lend a hand in any way that she can.

Florence is understated and kind. She is always willing to pitch in and help when needed. HVWA is blessed to have Florence as a volunteer.
