Volunteers are the heart and hands of IOCP. Their generous time, energy and savvy make our programs possible. From individuals and families to civic groups and corporations, volunteers are the service multipliers who grow our capacity to serve struggling families on a daily basis.
Each month, we highlight a volunteer from one of our many programs.
July Volunteer Spotlight: Lynn Groll, IOCP Board
IOCP Board Secretary Lynn Groll is a very busy woman but still finds time to devote to service. In addition to managing the BMO Harris Wayzata bank, she serves on the boards of the Park Nicollet Foundation, Wayzata Rotary, and Greater Wayzata Area Chamber of Commerce. Lynn appreciates IOCP’s “holistic” and “collaborative community approach” to service, saying “I believe that it takes a village to make a difference in the lives of others.” Lynn’s favorite things about her work with IOCP are “making a difference in the lives of others,” working with the “wonderfully talented and motivated IOCP staff,” and “the wisdom that I glean from LaDonna,” IOCP’s executive director.
In her free time, Lynn enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter and traveling to their original home on the East Coast to visit family and friends. As she says, “Life is good, and I am very blessed.”
Thank you to Lynn and other IOCP board and committee members for your generous contributions of time and talent!
