Companion Volunteers Receive Award

Cornerstone VNA congratulates their companion volunteer team, Matt and Cacidy Mowry of Rochester, NH, on being awarded a 2020 Volunteer Service Award from Volunteer NH at their annual awards ceremony, which was held virtually on December 9, 2020.

In searching for a meaningful volunteer opportunity in 2019, Matt and his 10 year old son, Cacidy, found Cornerstone VNA, a nonprofit home health and hospice care organization. As companion volunteers, Matt and Cacidy were matched up with a local community member who greatly appreciated their weekly visits to her home for friendship and support.

According to Ann Vennard, Assistant Director of Advancement, “Matt and Cacidy exemplify the future of volunteerism. Their authentic kindness is immeasurable and we are very proud to have them on our companion volunteer team.” Vennard adds, “Our volunteers are strategic partners in our mission fulfillment and complete our circle of caring. We are delighted that Matt and Cacidy have been recognized in this manner.”

Matt adds, “Cacidy and I were partnered with a wonderful woman, we would visit her in her home every Saturday or Sunday and visit, talk, and play cards with her, we had a great time.” Cacidy chimes in, “The most rewarding thing about volunteering is getting really close to the person you are volunteering with.” You can watch their award video in its entirety on the volunteer page of the Cornerstone VNA website at
