My name is Ann Morse, I am the Director of the La Plata County Humane Society Thrift Store. I have had the pleasure of working with Rosemarie Becker, a volunteer of the Humane Society Thrift Store for the last 24 years. She has clocked over 18,000 volunteer hours, working 5 days a week, 4 hours a day and arriving at 7:30 am every morning. Rosemarie not only sorts and prices all of our seasonal and miscellaneous items, but takes personal time out of her day to write birthday cards to each employee of the Humane Society. Rosemarie arrives every morning with a smile on her face, determination, and the energy to make sure the Thrift Store operates efficiently.
On August 7th, 2017, Rosemarie's water heater burst. After an assessment by a local plumber, the water heater had been leaking into the walls for a year, causing $10,000 worth of water damage. Her insurance company will only cover $5,000 worth of damages. We would like to help her pay for the water damage restoration, as she has provided us with an invaluable service to our organization for the last 24 years. Please take the time and consider donating any amount of money, to our longest working volunteer and very dear friend Rosemarie.
