We would like to recognize Nancy Holtz for being awarded Volunteer of the Month for May! The needs at Hospitality House are many, and Nancy and the Pine Tree Quilt Guild Members help to fill the need. For several years, the Quilt Guild has given quilts to our shelter, providing covering and a gentle hug to those who need warmth and security.
Nancy has been involved with Pine Tree Quilt Guild for five years. For the past two and a half years, she has been the chair of Community Service team. “Community Service is a caring group of volunteers who help every month in various capacities,” explained Nancy. She and her fellow volunteers sort fabric donations, sew on labels, match backs to donated tops, cut batting and sew binding. “Creating a quilt and giving such a gift is a group effort,” she added, noting that she and the Community Service provide quilts for Hospitality House and other organizations.
Nancy has fifty total years of nursing experience, with the last twenty as a nurse practitioner. Her experience and passion has led her to volunteer in the community. Nancy has administered Covid vaccines, volunteered with California Care Force in both Grass Valley and Sacramento clinics. She continues to work two days a week in a family practice office with no plans to retire any time soon.
“I have a heart for helping others,” said Nancy.
Thank you, Nancy and the Pine Tree Quilt Guild, for sharing your skills, passion, and love for the homeless individuals in our care.
