On Thursday, April 20, five of Capital Caring’s most dedicated volunteers were recognized by the Bowie Baysox baseball team. The volunteers, all of whom work with Capital Caring’s Prince George’s County (Maryland) neighborhood, were selected based on their commitment to serving their local community and were each given two tickets to the game against the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Capital Caring could not be more proud of these five volunteers, nor of the nearly 1,000 volunteers whose generosity knows no limits in simply improving care for the 1,300 moms, dads, and kids we support every day in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC.

BaysoxVolunteersCongratulations — and THANK YOU — go out to James Ealey, Ingrid Guzman, Elsie Cooper, LaTanya Clemons, and Kristen Waugh. We are so grateful for all you do!

“I don’t know what I did to deserve this recognition,” said James Ealey. “I enjoy volunteering for Capital Caring.  Providing companionship for the patients is a gift in itself.” James has been volunteering with Capital Caring for about four years. When his wife became ill, she came to Capital Caring for hospice support. After she passed, James took a month off from volunteering but then resumed his service with us.

“I was nervous about volunteering at first, but I’m not anymore,” admitted Kristen Waugh. “I wish more people knew about this great service. So many people could benefit from it.”
