The volunteer spirit runs deep among our residents and team members; Volunteers give their time to many different activities, from Bible education for local school children to arts and crafts. We’re rich with opportunities for people who want to share their talents both within Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement Community and in greater Quarryville.
At Quarryville, our mission is to provide for the spiritual, physical, emotional, and social needs of our residents through high quality facilities, services and personal care in a manner faithful to the Bible and honoring our Lord, Jesus Christ. Through our Community Volunteer Program, volunteers help the organization fulfill this mission every day.
The following are some examples of opportunities to volunteer at Quarryville:
Congratulations to Janet McGinnis who is in QPRC’s Volunteer Spotlight! Janet has been volunteering on and off for the past 30 years and worked as a nurse’s aide at Quarryville from 1970 to 1972.
Janet currently delivers the mail (and reads mail to some) in Skilled Nursing most every Tuesday. She also assists in taking residents to the dining room for the noon meal. Janet visits with residents in their rooms, takes them for walks, and recites poetry for them. In the past, Janet has crocheted holiday pins for the nursing staff (shamrocks, bunnies, hearts, chicks, etc.)
She is always pleasant and quick with a smile and kind word for everyone she meets. In addition, Janet cares and prays for residents, their families, and team members here at QPRC. Thank you, Janet, for your kindness and for sharing your time with our residents. You are greatly appreciated!
