Volunteer Spotlight: Sue Taylor

October 18, 2018

What brought you to RiverBend?

For almost 40 years I worked at Elkhart General Hospital as an office manager. I retired

earlier this year. I knew right away I’d need to volunteer somewhere—I couldn’t just stop

working after all those years. A friend of mine is a client here—she’s going through her

own cancer journey. She told me about their need for volunteers. I knew how it’s helped

her, and I thought it would be a good place to spend my time.

 

What do you do for RiverBend?

At first, I was brought on to be a greeter—welcoming people, pointing them in the right

direction. When they realized I could help with organizing and developing processes, they

placed me in more of a behind-the-scenes role. I help out wherever they need me, but for

the most part I help them keep track of clients’ needs.

 

What’s the best thing about this organizatio

 

n?

The facility itself is incredible. And the work they do is unlike anything I’ve seen. Once I

got here and started seeing everything they do for cancer survivors, it made me feel so

glad to be part of it. It’s a place that’s nice to come to. The people here are just great,

actually everything about it is great. I just love it.

 

What did you do for fun?

I like to exercise; I work out 7-8 hours a week. I also like to camp, and do pretty much anything outdoors. I love spending time with my nine grandkids, reading and knitting.

 

Your philosophy toward volunteering?

I volunteer because it makes me feel good and I hope I am helping others through my volunteering. I look forward to getting more
