May Volunteer of the Month

Sue Fair is one of the most genuine and kind people I have ever met. Each time I am around her, I am smiling. This past school calendar year, Sue has served as the President of the Dallas Women's Auxiliary, HFC Friends. She started with us as the Fall Coffee chair for HFC Friends the year previous and we fell her in love with her personality and her kindness. Throughout her time as President, Sue has been there for the families we serve. She created a new event--a night at the Museum of Nature and Science exclusively for our patients in October. She shopped with other HFC Friends volunteers at Walmart, attended both the Holiday Heroes parties in Dallas and Ft. Worth for the families to receive their gifts, and volunteered at the Valentine's Dinner. Sue never hesitate to pitch in and lend a hand wherever she is needed.
