Jennifer Johnson HR Business Partner, REM Minnesota
Grant Recipient, Let’s Go Fishing with Seniors
Jennifer volunteers with Let’s Go Fishing with Seniors, which enriches the lives of seniors and people with disabilities of all ages through free fishing and boating trips. She became involved with the charity in 2002, after seeing an ad seeking volunteers. She realized it was an opportunity to combine her two loves, fishing and helping others. Over the years, she has seen the difference the program makes in people’s lives. One participant who had had a stroke months before spoke his first word on a fishing trip that Jennifer led. It’s experiences like this that keep her coming back.
Let’s Go Fishing with Seniors will receive a $500 grant from The Foundation in honor of Jennifer’s volunteer spirit and hard work.
