Together Dolores and Martin have put in nearly 20,000 hours of volunteer time as AmeriCorps Senior RSVP volunteers, serving in a variety of many different capacities in their community from being an Activities Assistant helping our local veterans to giving comfort to Hospice patients. Most of the time you will find Martin and Dolores volunteering together.
Martin joined RSVP in 1997 and has contributed to the community nearly 5 days a week since then. One of Martin’s volunteer supervisors says “He’s a jack of all trades.” She went on to say, “Martin provided computer tech services and helped with whatever I needed.”
Martin has assisted with the Empty Stocking Program, Habitat for Humanity, Miles City Fire and Rescue, St. Vincent DePaul Thrift Store, and VA Montana Health Care System to name just a few non-profits that benefit from his services. Currently he volunteers at Custer County Food Bank and continued to do so since COVID.
Prior to retirement Dolores was the Activities Coordinator at Holy Rosary Extended Care. Following her retirement she continues to volunteer with activities at the facility. Dolores is also a regular volunteer at Friendship Villa Care Center, Holy Rosary Hospice, and in the medical records department at Holy Rosary Healthcare. Dolores has volunteered office assistant at Sacred Heart Parish School, St. Vincent DePaul Thrift Store, Custer County Food Bank. During COVID Dolores continues to volunteer at food bank and thrift store.
In 2010, Dolores and Martin almost missed the Volunteer Appreciation Tea because they had to finish volunteering at the hospital before they attended.
