“The clients have made volunteering such a happy experience for me. When you volunteer, you become a friend. You’ll quickly find out that you have a lot of things in common with everyone and that bond you create with the clients is indescribable. Because of OE, I’ve learned to always be happy and to always give your best every day when you work with amazing people.”
–Doug, Volunteer since 2009
Doug’s connection to OE began with his daughter Jennifer, who receives Respite services. He has been volunteering at Opportunity Enterprises for more than 10 years and is considered a valuable member of the OE Family.
Every Friday, Doug spends the day with amazing people and has made a special connection with Keith, one of OE’s clients . Keith looks forward to having Doug around, and his smile says it all. For Doug, every day he volunteers is a new experience with new memories.
