Nora McLaughlin, Registrar

McLaughlin initially became involved with Our House, a 24-hour, volunteer-run facility for people living with AIDS, by doing a friend (and volunteer at Our House) a favor. She helped place phone calls to potential donors at the non-profit and became so inspired by the stories people told about their experiences with Our House that she became a volunteer herself. Now, McLaughlin cooks breakfasts on Saturday mornings at Our House and hosts private dinners as an annual fundraising event. Additionally, every Friday night McLaughlin helps to cook an open community dinner at Grace Memorial alongside other volunteers. McLaughlin also provides hospice care at Providence Hospice. McLaughlin says that she  “loves the community and sense of solidarity that volunteering creates, among both the volunteers and the people they serve.”
