Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - What an honor for a dedicated volunteer from our metro area.
Ginny Danielson received the "Volunteer of the Year" award from Aging Services of Minnesota. It is the highest honor recognizing volunteers who support Minnesota seniors.
Danielson puts in 30-hours a week at Eventide Senior Living in Moorhead. She has been coming to Eventide for the last 25 years.
In the summer, she helps design and care for the elaborate gardens at Eventide. Aging Services of Minnesota called Ginny "an inspiring example of what volunteers can accomplish."
Ginny Danielson, Volunteer of the Year: “It's the visiting part. Sometimes even if I don't get to know the name, I try and call as many people by their first name as I can. If you just say hi, or a pat or some nonsense, for a lot of people who don't have relatives around, it kind of makes their day to have someone recognize them.”
Aging Services of Minnesota is the largest association serving the state's seniors.
