DMCC’s Volunteer of the Month for August was Jeff Barnouw, friendly caller and former board member, because he fervently tackles any task he agrees to do. DMCC’s Volunteer of the Month for September is Jeanne Waite, volunteer driver and Health and Wellness Team member, because she was a star moderator of our recent COVID-19 Q&A session.
DMCC programs and services depend on our incredible volunteers! To learn more about Jeff or Jeanne or becoming a DMCC volunteer, visit dmcc.cc/volunteerofthemonth.
