Volunteers, Mike and Trenace Harkin, make a difference

Mike Harkin has volunteered with Friends for Life for approximately seven years.  Mike lives in Round Rock currently but grew up in Waco.  He is a financial consultant for Mass Mutual and comes to Waco weekly to call on clients.  Those visits are also a good excuse to slip in a visit with his mom who still lives in Waco.  Mike’s regular volunteer job with Friends for Life is to make weekly telephone reassurance calls to about 30 clients.  These clients look forward to hearing from Mike every week and he often goes above and beyond to help if needed. 

For about 5 years now, Mike and his wife, Trenace, have volunteered with Friends for Thanksgiving.  They drive all the way from Round Rock Thanksgiving morning to help package and deliver meals to FFL clients.  According to Mike, Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be the same without helping to remember FFL’s clients.  Last year, due to unusual circumstances, we were short 7 meals to fulfill the requests.  Mike and Trenace found a local restaurant preparing Thanksgiving meals, purchased the meals and delivered to the remaining clients.
