Hello, My name is Kimberly. I am the Volunteer Coordinator for RSVP United Way. I would like to nominate the TACKLE Comfort Program for the "Summer of Sharing". In recent months we started a sub program for the TACKLE van (which drives Otsego County residents to and from cancer treatments in Petoskey) which provides each patient with a care package as they enter treatment. I started this project because I lost my grandpa a few years back to cancer and remember how uncomfortable he was after treatment. I include a water bottle, cross word book, blanket knitted by RSVP Volunteers, chap stick, mints and tissues. Small items that make a huge impact. Small things to let them know we care and want to help make them as comfortable as possible while utilizing the TACKLE program. This money would go a long way helping those individuals. Thank you.
