Cathy Cantey
The Carolinian
Florence, SC

Cathy is a remarkable woman who lights up a room with her positive energy. Cathy has been volunteering at The Carolinian since 2011, working closely with Activity Director Virginia Brown.

At The Carolinian, Cathy wears an infectious smile and is able to get everyone involved in community activities. She is a peacemaker at heart and uses her relational skills to bring residents together.

The residents, especially those in The Carolinian’s Assisted Living community, frequently express their gratitude for her sincere dedication and enthusiastic attitude.

Cathy is able to serve her residents holistically. Along with facilitating recreational activities, she also provides emotional and spiritual support to residents and their families. She embodies RHF’s mission to provide an environment for residents that enhances their quality of life in all facets including the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Not only is Cathy making a difference in the lives of RHF residents, she also volunteers at several other organizations. Cathy runs arts and crafts classes for Lake City Senior Center, sings in her church choir, teaches Sunday school, and volunteers for Light House Ministry where she collects and distributes blankets for those in need. She also volunteers at House of Hope where she advocates for homeless children and their parents. Cathy is passionate about serving her community and giving voice to the voiceless.

For all her service to The Carolinian community and other charitable organizations, RHF is pleased to present Ms. Cathy Cantey with the 2013 Volunteer of the Year Award.
