Escalon Times - - 209 LIVING -

Ms. Inez Lewis, a long­time Com­mu­nity Hospice Vol­un­teer, has been awarded a Daily Points of Light award for her out­stand­ing ser­vice and ded­i­ca­tion.

The Daily Points of Light Award, cre­ated by the ad­min­is­tra­tion of Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H. W. Bush, hon­ors one in­di­vid­ual or group each week­day that has made a pos­i­tive im­pact in their com­mu­nity.

Ms. Lewis has spent the last 11 years vol­un­teer­ing for Com­mu­nity Hospice in many dif­fer­ent ca­pac­i­ties in­clud­ing: vis­it­ing pa­tients, pro­vid­ing sup­port at the Com­mu­nity Hospice Alexan­der Co­hen Hospice House and trav­el­ing the Cen­tral Val­ley to ed­u­cate com­mu­nity mem­bers on re­sources of­fered by Com­mu­nity Hospice.

“Our ded­i­cated vol­un­teers are the heart of our or­ga­ni­za­tion and help us ful­fill our mis­sion each day,” said Lupe Perez, Com­mu­nity Hospice’s Di­rec­tor of Vol­un­teers. “We are grate­ful for the sup­port and ded­i­ca­tion Inez has shared with our or­ga­ni­za­tion and are elated she re­ceived such a pres­ti­gious recog­ni­tion.”
