This month, we caught up with Store to Door Volunteer Kris Lloyd. who is a volunteer extraordinaire at Beaverton! As a volunteer shopper, checker, order-taker, and on-call Friendly Caller, Kris has given more than 185 hours since connecting with Store to Door in 2021.
Q: How did you first get involved with Store to Door?
A: I heard about Store To Door through a volunteer website as I was looking for meaningful things to do after I retired from corporate life.
Q: What keeps you busy when you are not volunteering with Store to Door?
A: I also volunteer with an organization called Care Partners which provides hospice support to people in the local area. Additionally, I have fallen in love with Pilates and do that 3 to 4 times a week. I have one incredible adult daughter and two feline babies that mean the world to me.
Q: What is something that your fellow volunteers would be surprised to know about you?
A: They might be surprised that I was born and raised in Portland and have truly never lived anywhere else. In fact, my mother, myself and my daughter were all born at Good Samaritan hospital.
Q: What would you tell someone who is thinking of volunteering with Store to Door?
A: I would say do it! It’s a great organization with super people and you get more out of it then you put into it.
