This month we'd to thank someone who continues to help others, even during these tough times. Bonnie Hubers has been driving for our Transportation Assistance Program for over 16 years. She first heard about the center and it's TAP through The Sun newspaper. She had recently retired and was looking for something to do. When she started out she only wanted to do local rides. Since then she has expanded that to "no boundaries" and is considered one of our long distance driver, taking rides as far away as they need to go. She regularly drives between 200 - 300 miles per month. However, not only does she TAP drive, but she also has been delivering lunches from our Free Lunch Program, to seniors unable to drive to the center. Her sense of volunteerism doesn’t stop there. She doesn’t drive for us five days a week because she is very busy helping others at different locations as well. Now when she's not driving, she also volunteers at Our Lady of Hope Pantry Food Program, serves at Mary's Table, and works at the San Bernardino Community Partnership Food Bank. Originally from Howells, Nebraska, she graduated from the University of Nebraska and got her nursing degree from Creighton University. She served in Vietnam as an army nurse. When she came back in 1970 she visited her sister at March AFB in Riverside and never left. That's good because it was out here that she met her husband. She nursed at Kaiser in Fontana for a while, but her husband was in the military so she moved around a bit, but he came back to Norton. She did some "freelance" work at the old County Hospital (now Arrowhead Regional Medical Center), then went back to Kaiser before retiring and coming to work for us. Thanks Bonnie for helping others here and elsewhere in the community.
