Lowry Hill Volunteer Nancy Eustis named Volunteer of the Year

Nancy Eustis has been named Volunteer of the Year at The Kenwood Senior Living

Lowry Hill Volunteer Nancy Eustis has been named “Volunteer of the Year” at a volunteer appreciation social held during National Volunteer Month on Thursday, April 18, 2024 at The Kenwood Senior Living, 825 Summit Ave, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

According to a survey by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the Minneapolis-St. Paul area ranked first in volunteerism for the entire country. Nancy Eustis is one reason why.

She has lived at The Kenwood since 1997. Eustis has volunteered throughout the community in many ways. For three years, she was president of the Residents Council, convened creative writing classes and the newsletter committee, and every other week she leads discussions on current events.

Years ago, Eustis suffered a spinal cord injury from a car accident. She is wheel-chair-bound, but nothing keeps her in her apartment for long.

“I like that I’ve found a way to give back,” she said. “Volunteering at The Kenwood keeps me learning and being with people.”

National Volunteer Week’s purpose is to celebrate and recognize the contributions of volunteers. It is an opportunity to join the impact of volunteerism and encourage more people to get involved in their communities. National Volunteer Week in the United States was first established via a Presidential Proclamation signed by Richard Nixon in 1974.

“Nancy is best at looking out for the betterment of our community and finds many ways to share her talents and experiences. She is delightful to work with in any capacity, and we feel fortunate to know her.”

Jennifer Volkenant, Executive Director, The Kenwood
