St. Luke’s Magic Valley and Jerome give back

On behalf of our volunteers, board of directors, staff and care receivers — thank you St. Luke’s Magic Valley Health Foundation for selecting Interlink Volunteer Caregivers to receive a Community Health Improvement Fund award. The money will be used to reimburse volunteers for mileage accrued while using their own vehicles to transport vulnerable citizens to health-related appointments.

IVC volunteers help senior citizens, the chronically-ill and disabled citizens by providing transportation to their health-care providers — allowing people to remain independent. Volunteers graciously donate their time and use their own vehicles so our friends and neighbors can seek medical treatment, thereby improving their health and quality of life.

Thanks also to Community Relations Director Jody Tremblay and Administrative Assistant Sandy Nuffer for their help with the grant process. Thank you, St. Luke’s, for making a real difference in the lives of so many and for helping IVC give our most vulnerable citizens the “Gift of Home!”

Edie Schab, executive director of Interlink Volunteer Caregivers

Veteran thanks civilians

I probably speak for many men and women in uniform (or used to be) who felt honored this year by the many gratuitous offerings from local restaurants and merchants during Veterans Day weekend. I had my car washed for free at the Rocket Car Wash; had breakfast with friends at Denny’s and Perkins; and had dinner on Monday at the Golden Corral. There were many other places that offered free services and meals for vets, but one can only eat out just so many times in one weekend! Churches and other places of worship also took the time to recognize and honor vets in their worship services. That felt good and right. Men and women in uniform were saying that American society may have turned a corner in how we recognize the men and women in uniform. These offered their health and safety — and many lost sanity on the battlefields, skies and seas — in defense of life and liberty for America. Families who lost loved ones were honored by the gestures of our community merchants. Thanks kindly! We will come back to these merchants who recognized us this weekend. Many did things in uniform which they cannot talk about because of the pain or just because you had to be there to appreciate it. We only ask to be quietly honored, and that felt good this year. Over and out!
