Claremore Recognizes Superstar Volunteer!

Jeri Collins has been a Senior Companion Volunteer with the Rogers County Health Department for 15 years! She has been selected as the Rogers County “Champion of Compassion” for January 2018, because of her time and dedication to this great volunteer program.

Jeri said, “I really enjoy it because it’s not only helping others, but it’s helping me by getting me out of the house and around others.” Since Jeri has been such a wonderful volunteer, we wanted you to get to know her a little better.

Her favorite time of the year is “Thanksgiving, where all my family finds time to get together.”  Another fun fact about Jeri is she enjoys ventriloquism, particularly Freddy Fatter.

Jeri’s first job was as a stocker at her local five & dime. The most interesting place she’s ever visited is Alaska, where she took a 10-day cruise with her eldest son.

Jeri, thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication!

The Senior Companion Program is currently accepting application for stipend volunteer positions. Please contact the Rogers County Health Department at 918-341-3166.

Special thanks to the Northeast Tech – Afton Graphics & Multimedia department for the info!
