“Now I’m giving back to the community.”

Nerva Tripp, Volunteer

I’ve lived around the Battle Creek area all my life and now I’m giving back to the community. I have volunteered for many years and have given over 16,500 hours. I enjoy meeting people. I like to meet people and see if I can help them, too. I think everyone should get involved in volunteer work. I think as you retire from your work, you ought to get involved in something to keep you going.
