Congrats to Gerald Brinkman for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Fairview Developmental Center
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Gerald Brinkman has been a volunteer of Fairview Developmental Center for over 10 years. During this time he has assisted with our Sunday Catholic Services held here at Fairview for the Catholic residents. Our individuals are developmentally disabled and unable to attend Mass in the community. Gerald comes every Sunday, and prepares all items needed for the Mass before the priest arrives. Gerald assists our residents in participation and facilitates their portion of each Mass. He is a kind, gentle, and truly dedicated to our residents. He works tirelessly to ensure our Catholic residents are provided their time for worship and, in the recent absence of a Catholic Chaplain, has been solely responsible for preparing Mass. We would be lost without him!
