Volunteer of the Year 2015
Towne Creek Apartments
John Crnkovich has been delivering mail, and happiness, to Towne Creek Apartments since 2003. He is a bright spot for the residents anytime he visits. Even though he is the local postal worker, he is “John the Mailman” to the residents because the special attention and care he brings.
John has a history of providing events for the residents on his days off, such as Breakfast, Pizza Party, Cook-Outs, as well as making donations of needed items for Pot Lucks or other celebrations for the residents.
“He spends his time and money to throw us parties,” says Towne Creek resident Katharine Peltz. “He waits on us, happily bringing the food to our seats, fussing over us, and making each resident feel special and cared about.”
Kathryn Human, a resident at Towne Creek states, “John has catfish cookouts for us and he doesn’t even like fish!”
He is known for making sure each female resident and staff receive one red rose on Valentine’s and Mother’s Day. John visits residents who have been hospitalized or have had to move on to Skilled Nursing communities.
Betty O’Mary says, “There are times when we often feel alone and a little forgotten by our busy families, but John’s attention during his visits here and his spontaneous events… boost our spirits and provide wonderful fellowship within the residents. John has definitely earned his angel wings.”
RHF is pleased to present John Crnkovich with the 2015 Volunteer of the Year Award.
