Donna has been involved, coordinating “The Holiday Project” in Houston, Texas, and surrounding areas, through Volunteer Houston, since Christmas of 2002. In 2007 she was invited to be on The Holiday Project’s National Board. 

Donna is retired from her career, as an activity director and community liaison, but continues her passion for connecting volunteers to nursing homes and assisted living facilities, to enhance the lives of the residents and the volunteers. Two of her favorite sayings are, “To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world” and “For somehow, not only at Christmas, but all the long year through, The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you.” John Greenleaf Whittier 

The Holiday Project brings Donna much JOY! She invites everyone to volunteer and experience the joy of volunteering and to spread joy through The Holiday Project!
