A Feel Good Friday surprise for a volunteer who has spent 15 years helping hospice patients

EastIdahoNews.com and Ashley Furniture HomeStore are teaming up every week to bring you some good news during Feel Good Friday!

We want to surprise people in our community with random acts of kindness and leave you feeling good.

We recently learned about a woman named Dawn who has volunteered with Hospice of Eastern Idaho for 15 years.

The non-profit organization often holds fundraisers so they can continue to serve their patients and Dawn has been instrumental in successfully raising money.

Dawn began her service nearly two decades ago as a patient care volunteer that entailed sitting with patients, visiting and giving family members a much needed break. To this day, we’re told that she will sit with a patient if it is needed.

Dawn also worked with other organizations and strives to make eastern Idaho a better place to live.

We decided to visit Dawn and thank her for her service. Watch the video above to see the surprise!
