The Volunteer of the Month for March is Cindy Staples!

Cindy first found Hammer in 2002, when she was looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the life of someone else. Cindy is passionate about health and wellness, and when she saw that Gretchen was looking for a fitness coach, it seemed like a perfect fit.

For the past 17 years, Cindy and Gretchen have walked together to stay healthy. But volunteering quickly gave way to becoming fast friends. In fact, Gretchen attended Cindy’s wedding in 2010, and danced at her reception. Gretchen had so much fun, as did the happy couple!

Anna Byro, Program Manager at Hammer, had this to say about Cindy, “Cindy has been a delight to have as a volunteer. She is someone who comes into the house and instantly Gretchen’s face lights up with excitement. When I think of those two and their relationship, all I think is laughter, kindness and respect, true qualities of a great friendship.”

Thank you, Cindy, for being such a consistent and positive light in Gretchen’s life.
