Between her full time job as a Kaiser Advice Nurse and her meticulous care of an ambitious garden, Patty Harris of Sacramento finds time to volunteer. One of Patty’s projects is sharing her passion for nursing by conducting presentations to young girls in schools.
Having energy to do even more, Patty joined American Red Cross one year ago as a Trainer and Donor Ambassador; assisting Sacramento-area volunteers through Donor Ambassador trainings.
At a recent Stockton high school blood drive, Patty said this about what stimulates her to volunteer. “It inspires me. It restores my faith in the goodness of people and how generous they are to give of their own bodies. Volunteering money is important but time is important as well. Volunteering is the backbone of our society.”
