Posted by The Taylor's Gift Volunteer Team




A sweet and gentle spirit, a precious smile, and a loyal commitment to organ donation is what we are blessed with each time we are near our November Volunteer of the Month... Lisa Barker!

Lisa volunteered with Taylor’s Gift Foundation for the first time at our 4T Sand Volleyball Tournament this past summer with her husband, Reid. We've absolutely adored Lisa from the moment we met her! As a recent liver recipient she is a living example of the gift of life, and we are so encouraged by her enthusiasm and joy for life!

We are proud to announce that our volunteer of the month is.... Kim Dicken!

Kim is a special volunteer that has been involved in almost every event that Taylor’s Gift Foundation has organized since 2010. Helping with everything from checking-in volunteers to important behind the scenes work, no matter what the responsibility may be, Kim takes it on with gusto and a big smile. We always know that when we have a job we need her help with, her role will be completed perfectly!

Living Proof for the Gift of Life

Posted by The Taylor's Gift Volunteer Team





We are so excited to announce that May’s Volunteer of the Month is... Larry Hediger! "Liver Larry", as we've lovingly nicknamed him, is a five year liver recipient and a true treasure to us at Taylor's Gift Foundation. Larry, thank you so much for all you do!

Called to Connect for the Cause of Organ Donation

Being an organ recipient, Larry felt called to support Taylor’s Gift after hearing Founder, Todd Storch speak at a local gathering. Helping out at one of our first events, he has been an active volunteer with the foundation since the very beginning.

Attending almost every major event, Larry has helped us in so many capacities. Helping both in front of and behind the scenes, he is incredibly generous - always eagerto give his time and talent to help further the Taylor's Gift misson. Passionate about sharing his story, we were so excited to have Larry as a featured speaker with Founders Todd and Tara at the Collin College Distinguished Lecture Series back in October of 2013. 

We love having Larry at our events! He is always wearing a smile, meeting and interacting with participants. It seems simple, but he is making a HUGE impact for the cause of organ donation; he is living proof of the work that Taylor's Gift exists for!

Larry, you are a gift to us and we thank you for for every moment of time you have so generously given to us!
