Hal Broxey has been involved with Interfaith Outreach for many years and is impressed with “the variety of volunteer opportunities that make a positive difference in our community.” Hal is currently a volunteer driver for the Medical Rides Program. As a volunteer driver, he has the opportunity to talk and develop personal connections with his passengers. On two occasions, these friendships grew so strong that when the men passed, their families invited Hal to their funerals. Connections like these bring special meaning to Hal’s commitment at Interfaith Outreach.
He considers Interfaith Outreach synonymous with “home,” a place where people encourage, accept and help each other. He believes “Interfaith Outreach has contributed to making Plymouth a preferred community that has a genuine caring interest in all our citizens, regardless of ethnic background.”
Hal and his wife Dee live in Plymouth and both feel that “having Interfaith Outreach located in Plymouth enriches the quality of our community.” Dee and Hal have volunteered in the food shelf and have supported local families through the Holiday Gift Program for many years. “The more we learned about the value of Interfaith Outreach to our community, the more motivated we became.”
In the future, Hal hopes Interfaith Outreach includes expanded assistance for battered women and transitional housing for those among us who are homeless.
Thank you, Hal. Every connection you make strengthens our community.
