Jill Feyereisen, Gregory Middle School, creates personalized greeting cards for the residents of Rosebud Nursing Home. She started doing this when she learned that some residents were not receiving birthday or get-well cards. Feyereisen keeps a running list of the residents' birthdays and makes frequent visits to the home. Now all residents receive birthday cards and get-well cards if they are ill.

"Volunteering is really fun -- even if you're only helping one person, it means a lot."
