Barbara loves volunteering at the Sandy Senior Center Thrift Store. She spends countless hours searching the valley for deals and steals, treasures and trinkets, to be repaired, refinished, cleaned, polished and sold to her customers. She loves the people she works with and the wonderful seniors who frequent this thriving establishment. The Thrift Store raised more than $16,000 last year alone, which all went directly back to the programs and operations for the Sandy Senior Center. For the past 4 years Barbara has also been an active volunteer at Juan Diego Catholic High School.
As with most volunteers, Barbara says she gets more than she gives through the work she enjoys, the relationships she’s made, and the personal satisfaction she receives from helping others is immeasurable.
