Published: July 10, 2018

The Sparrow Women’s Board of Managers and the Sparrow Volunteer Services Department have named Sandy Klusack of East Lansing the July Volunteer of the Month. Klusack has been volunteering in the TLC Oncology group in the cancer center for over 10 years. She started in the Sparrow Gift Shop where a friend told her they needed more volunteers. She says she really enjoys helping people and talking with the patients and is said to always have a great personality and is very good talking with the patients and caregivers. She also makes coffee and cookies for the lounge, gets along well with staff and other volunteers, and is always cheerful and dependable.

She also has volunteered with “Meals on Wheels”, the Ronald McDonald House, and the Bath Senior Center.

She grew up in Sault Ste. Marie and now lives in East Lansing, where she loves to read, garden, redo furniture with chalk paint, and projects with recycled wood. She attended LCC for 2 years before a career in Customer service and sales working for Huntsman Advanced Ed Material.

Klusack is married to Larry and they have 2 children and 4 grandchildren plus a golden retriever, “Cooper”. They travel occasionally in their motor home to lakes around Michigan.
She says, “When I leave my volunteer duties I feel good!”
