ALBERT LEA, Minn. - 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 October Volunteer of the Month is Diane Hanson.
Hanson has been giving back to the Albert Lea community for decades, volunteering with all kinds of different organizations, including the Crime Victim's Crisis Center, Girl Scouts, and Save Our Healthcare.
"I just help wherever I'm needed," said Diane. "I started way back when my kids were young. I thought it was a good thing for them to learn."
About a year ago, Diane's daughter Angie won the Volunteer of the Month award. She said she learned the importance of volunteering from her mom.
"She's always cared about her community and cared about things and wanted to make things different. And she's a go-getter and gets things done," said Angie.
"I think it's important that you give back," said Diane.
