MASON CITY, Iowa- Each month, KIMT News 3 and our Giving Your Best partners, Diamond Jo Casino and First Citizens Bank, recognize someone who goes above and beyond to give back to their community.
Our November Volunteer of the Month is Harold Hopp. Hopp is a Navy veteran who spent much of his life giving back to other veterans.
"He volunteered here at the VA for 25 years. He worked here at the clinic as a volunteer for many years. He also drove the Navy van down to Des Moines to pick up patients between here and Des Moines to take them to their appointments in Des Moines at the VA," said Janenne O'Donnell, who works at he Mason City VA Clinic and nominated Hopp for the award.
"I looked upon it as still serving my country by aiding others," said Hopp.
"He was a wonderful volunteer. He would show up all the time no matter if he didn't feel good, he was here," O'Donnell said.
