Volunteer Spotlight: Sherrill Young

Sherrill Young has been volunteering with Alive since November of 2018. The first time Kelly Etheridge, our Magnolia Team Volunteer Coordinator, spoke with Sherril, she asked her if she was interested in visiting a patient 45 minutes away from her home. Without any hesitation, Sherrill responded, “Absolutely!”

Throughout the pandemic, Sherrill has cooked meals for families and written numerous cards to patients. She once drove more than an hour, one way, to deliver Arby’s sandwiches to a patient and caregiver. Move over Uber Eats, we’ve got Sherrill Young!

Thanks, Sherrill, for all you do!
