Volunteer of the Year Nominees Alice and Ted Soldan
Alice and Ted Soldan
There’s a saying that if you’ve been friends for seven years, your friendship will last a lifetime. Alice and Ted are one year away from having a lifelong friendship with their Forever Friend, Rose, who nominated them for Volunteer of the Year. Rose expresses how much she enjoys the “show and tell” visits when Alice shares pictures or old things from her mother. “I am blessed to have such good friends. Thanks for sending them into my life,” Rose states in her nomination form. Ted and Alice go above and beyond in being a friend to Rose by also helping Rose around her house.
They have done so much more than visiting as they’ve been volunteering for almost 40 years! Some other volunteering they have done for Little Brothers is food bag delivery, telephone reassurance during Covid, and being lead host and lead cook during the holidays at our Tapiola site. They have helped behind the scenes with our menu planning too. Alice and Ted are amazing volunteers who have so much love and passion for the elders, community, and Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly.
