Santa Claus Girls: Friendships old and new

Dec. 21, 2017; MLive

Volunteers for the Santa Claus Girls often talk about the camaraderie at the charity’s headquarters, where hundreds of people are united in a common cause. They say many friendships are forged over the sorting, wrapping, packaging and routing of gifts for needy children.

… For (Linda) Stewart, a retired nursing professor at Grand Rapids Community College, volunteering offers her a way to continue serving children in need of help. When she worked as a nursing professor, one of her assignments was in pediatric nursing.

… It’s also a place where volunteers can reconnect with old friends, sometimes in surprising ways. Stewart and a fellow nursing professor from GRCC, Edith Miller, were once carrying on a conversation around a corner from each other without realizing they were talking to someone they already knew. Surrounded by mountains of packages, volunteers might be able to hear their fellow workers, but not necessarily see them.
