80 year-old volunteer welcomes seniors at Salvation Army lunch in Mesa

TSA MesaEighty year-old volunteer Daisy Morin is a breath of fresh air! She’s been helping our chef Daryl Howard in the kitchen at the Mesa, Arizona Salvation Army for the last year.

In addition to her meal prep duties, she greets the seniors as they come for their four-times-per-week lunch. And greet she does!

We’re grateful for all our volunteers and especially Daisy! If you’d like to read more about this sweet story, please click here for a link to a recent piece in the Arizona Central newspaper.
