Meet our Volunteer of the Month, Lynn Hailstone!

“Lynn has been consistently volunteering as one of our Trader Joe’s pickup volunteers and it has been such a joy getting to know her. She has a contagious positive energy, which makes sorting through boxes and boxes of food FUN! We are so grateful for Lynn for all that she does for Maggie’s!”

– Kelly Williams, Volunteer Program Coordinator

Lynn + The Magdalen House = 💚

Started volunteering:

June 2021

Has donated a total of:

36 hours! This is valued at $1,027 for our organization, meaning Lynn has helped cover the costs of over 100 Big Books for our two-week First Step program clients! 📘

You can usually find her:

Sorting through our Trader Joe’s donation at Maggie’s! If not, you can find her dropping off the remaining donated items at a homeless shelter or food pantry.

I’ve never seen her without:

The plastic sheets that she keeps in her car to protect it from occasionally mushy Trader Joe’s fruit (such forethought!)

One time she:

Knew we were short one volunteer, so without any hesitation she volunteered to pick up the entire Trader Joe’s donation by herself. 💪

Our favorite thing about her is:

The positivity that she brings with her each Sunday! 💚

The Magdalen House wouldn’t be the same without her because:

We depend on our Trader Joe’s volunteers like Lynn to help provide for our First Step clients throughout the week!


If you’d like to support our mission through volunteering, we’d love to have you!
