2020 Volunteer of the Year
This year we are proud to announce Gerard Desilets from The Day Breakers in The Villages. Gerard is a force to be reckoned with as he supports caregivers and the AFO. His support this year, as a new volunteer, was immeasurable. He took on a huge role for The Villages Support Walk and did it with a smile, regardless of any obstacle that came his way. His positive outlook on his tasks and life in general is an inspiration to everyone of us. He is that special reminder of why we do what we do at the AFO! Thank you Gerard!

With her passion for the South Lake community she uses her position to educate individuals on hospice services and programs through creating unique community events for a variety of audiences. Kristina has built many partnerships and thoroughly enjoys connecting individuals to other resources in the community, so volunteering with AFO became a perfect fit after she met Pam Schmitz two years ago.
