Twelve years of volunteering for the CPD has earned “Aunt” Mary Kwiek Cache Valley’s “Volunteer of the Month” award. She currently helps out the Research and Evaluation division with its paper-shredding needs.

Aunt Mary’s is a familiar face around the CPD, one that always has a happy smile on it and comes with a kind word that brightens up everyone’s day.  Mary finds a lot of enjoyment helping others and has become part of the CPD family through the years.

That’s what happens when you volunteer at the CPD; soon you begin to feel right at home and before you know it, you’re part of our family.

Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community, and when you volunteer at the CPD you help to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and their families.  If you have a few extra hours and would like to do something worthwhile with them, consider contacting Jeff Sheen, the CPD Volunteer Coordinator at 435-797-8113 or  He’ll be sure to find something that will interest you and help you give to others.  You can check out some of the current volunteer opportunities that we have on our website. 

Thanks, Aunt Mary, for brightening up our little corner of the world at the CPD!
