Cache Valley Volunteer of the Month: Congrats Victor Jewkes
Volunteering at the AT Lab can be an adventure, and to recognize the many hours of hands-on help Victor Jewkes of MedSource has given to the lab, we nominated him for the Cache Valley Volunteer of the Month for January.
The award, given by the Cache Valley Volunteer Center, was presented to Victor today at the Pioneer Valley Lodge.
He has been a consistent and conscientious volunteer at the Utah Assistive Technology Lab. Using his professional expertise, Victor spends much of his own time fixing and refurbishing assistive technology for residents of Cache Valley.
From mobility equipment to ramps and lifts, Victor goes the extra mile to make sure people with disabilities have the working AT they need, regardless of their ability to afford it. His can-do attitude and a love of serving others makes Victor a great advocate of the AT Lab and people with disabilities.
Victor said, "This means more than you know. I appreciate the honor, and want to recognize the AT Lab for all that it does for people with disabilities."
