Westhaven Apartment Introduces Volunteer Program

Volunteering is said to be its own reward, benefiting the donor and recipient of the time, and that is why the property manager for Westhaven Apartments wants to bring a volunteer program to the facility.

“The opportunities are plentiful,” Property Manager Lucy Coppes said. “Volunteers are needed in our facility for transportation to doctor's appointments and trips to grocery stores. We are also looking for volunteers that can lead social activities for the residents.”

The current residents formed a resident association in the last year and attempted to organize different activities. They have discussed a movie night, card tournaments, and events that could be held on the weekends. “We would also love it if an organization such as a church would like to sponsor a meal every now and then,” Coppes added.

There are more than 1,500 volunteers at National Church Residences’ facilities across the country, committing 55,000 hours of service. Volunteers have received national recognition for service through the Presidential Service Award, and they receive organizational recognition though the volunteer recognition program.

“We truly value the volunteers that serve our residents as well as the residents that volunteer within their own community,” said Stacey Kyser, director of volunteer services for National Church Residences. “Volunteers often share with me that they receive more than they give when they are involved in service. We like to keep this positive cycle going and have many opportunities for engagement for people of all ages.”

Coppes invites anyone interested in volunteering to reach out to her by phone, email or online. Her telephone number is 419-257-2717, her email is

“A volunteer should be aware that they are helping to create a better place for not just themselves and the immediate recipient of the help, they are working to create a better place for their community and ultimately, the world. With a giving attitude, every situation is an opportunity for success.”
