When and why I began volunteering: Jackie Kundert called me on Memorial Day weekend last year to see if I would be interested in being part of FAITH, an idea for a group that she had been thinking about creating. Her call came right at the perfect time for me as it was just what I needed - to work toward something to help those with addiction in their lives. I know what a lonely life it is to have an addict in your family as my son was a heroin addict and eventually died from an overdose, and I was so ready to work with Jackie and her never-ending energy.
