Pernicie Welch
Simpson County RSVP – Mendenhall, MS
 

I have been a volunteer with Simpson County RSVP since June 2001, volunteering at the Old Pearl Community Center and the Copiah Living Nursing Home.

During Hurricane Katrina I lost power. Fortunately it was quickly restored and when it was I plugged the freezers of three other families into my own power. Using my gas stove I also cooked for several families; washed clothes for 21 people; went to the local fire station to pick up ice, water, and MRE meals to deliver to families; donated clothes to those who lost everything; and provided refreshments for utility workers. I also joined a group of others and put on a carnival for the community.

Despite all of I wish I could have done more.
