Alice Dole, 1995-2002 President
5/4/2019: Our Board President, Liz Jenkins, had the pleasure of speaking with Alice Dole, long-time AIO Volunteer (1995-2002) about her AIO experiences. Some of the memorable quotes of the conversation were:
~ “Hard to think of a time when there wasn’t an AIO”
~ “Handing out a cake for a child’s birthday is one of my best memories”
~ “I volunteered from my heart”
Alice still holds AIO in her heart with gratitude and fondness. She is delighted to hear about how well we are still able to serve our clients, thanks to the generosity of so many in this community. In her day, we served ~200 families per month; now we serve ~400 families per month from across Knox County. It is because of dedicated volunteers like Alice, that AIO will be celebrating our 30th anniversary next year!
