Ruth Ann Branin
This quarter we spotlight our sweet volunteer, Ruth Ann Branin. Ruth Ann started volunteering at the Alzheimer’s Alliance in 2013. When she first started volunteering, she had just retired and “wanted to help support such a great cause.” Ruth Ann is one of our front desk volunteers. She says, “working at the front desk, I see firsthand the good this organization does in the fight against this terrible disease and the caring support they give families of this community. When I see family members come in desperately seeking help and guidance after their loved one has just been diagnosed, they are devastated and don’t know where to start. They always get such caring support and information from the staff. Families leave with a little hope and a smile on their face. Seeing the smile on their face makes me feel so good.”
Ruth Ann also serves on our Twice as Fine Texarkana Wine Festival committee. She always does an amazing job with vendor hospitality. Our vendors always love the hospitality area and say we treat them better than any other event they attend.
“The Alzheimer’s Alliance staff and volunteers are so passionate about what they do, I am proud to be a part of the Alzheimer’s Alliance.” The Alzheimer’s Alliance is honored to have Ruth Ann as a volunteer.
