Volunteers honored at St. Bernards Auxiliary luncheon

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Members of the St. Bernard's Auxiliary are honoring the volunteers who help make a difference.

A luncheon took place at St. Bernard's Auditorium to pay tribute to those who have given their time to others. They hosted a fashion show and awards ceremony to recognize valued volunteers.

Nettie Whitehead has been volunteering for 25 years and said the work is its own reward. "Meeting people every day, doing something for them, you feel good about that.  So, that's enough award," said Whitehead.

She said volunteering is something everyone should do. "They need to be involved in their community and there's no better place than here, or in your schools.  Giving back to the community and helping others, you just feel really good about it."
