Linda Vallelonga has been a host family volunteer with Wesway for over 25 years. Her dedication to volunteering and her compassion for people is outstanding. During this time, Linda has provided short-term care for a young man who has special needs. This short term care has allowed his family and caregivers to rest and renew their energy. This commitment has blossomed into a fantastic life long relationship between Linda's family and the family they were matched with. Linda is a wonderful example for us all, showing over two and half decades of commitment and service to a local family by providing respite. She is an amazing, Thunder Bay resident who is truly worthy of this award.
