Barb Jurek is a vivacious 86-years-young volunteer who has been helping the ANGELS since April 2016. She regularly drives seniors to doctor appointments, grocery shopping and social events. As a key member of the Activities Committee, she has provided many hours of service supporting events through phone calls, bake sales, working in the Attic thrift store, driving and social visits. In the month of April alone she donated over 119 hours of service to the ANGELS organization.
Barb’s history of volunteering dates back to World War II. In 1941 she volunteered with the Red Cross folding bandages and assembling first aid kits. She also collected newspapers, magazines and metals for the war. She was a bell ringer for the Salvation Army and sold poppies to support the veterans.
