Volunteer extraordinaire Priscilla Forney is often referred to as the “fairy godmother” at Children’s Village. She magically appears on the clinic days when she is most needed.
Flitting around taking care of clerical tasks, getting toys, cleaning, or greeting families and escorting them in and out of the therapy room, Priscilla is a happy, calming presence for all.
“I have a much more successful day when Priscilla is in the orthotic clinic because she anticipates what we need. She has a joyful demeanor and brings her energy and excitement to each family that she encounters. She helps us to speed up the turnaround time for getting ankle foot orthotics for children, often cutting the waiting time in half! Because of her help, we can provide much more efficient service; a real plus when working with children,” said Katie Buck, Children’s Village physical therapist.
Dedicated volunteers like Priscilla are the heart of Children’s Village. If you would like to become a volunteer, contact Brandenjohnson@yvmh.org, telephone 575-8053.
