A friend introduced Grant Maxted to Casey House shortly after it opened in 1988, when he was invited to drop by and see it for himself. That visit impressed Grant; he felt Casey House was “doing such a wonderful job and filling a desperate need, especially at that time.” He started contributing financially.
After being a Casey House donor for many years Grant felt he wanted to get a little more involved with the organization and 16 years ago started volunteering his time. Grant spends two afternoons a month at reception, sometimes kept busy with the phone, sometimes chatting with clients, if they want to chat. His experience with Casey House over the past 28 years has only strengthened his view, “that it is a first class organization filling an important need.”
When he’s not helping out at Casey House, Grant works full time as an anesthesiologist.
In celebration of Volunteer Recognition Week, April 10-16, Casey House is featuring volunteers who contribute their time and expertise to help Casey House deliver inspired, compassionate care to men and women living with HIV/AIDS.
