Volunteer Spotlight - Larry Jensen

At Caring Hands, we want to provide compassionate care to our neighbors in eastern Polk County. We couldn’t do that without reliable volunteers like Larry Jensen, our featured volunteer of the month. Larry retired as a Project Manager for NewTech Engineering and Environmental. Since 2017, Larry has been volunteering in the warehouse. We are very grateful for all the ways Larry serves at Caring Hands.
