Volunteer Spotlight


Vaughn Hunkins, 1925 – 2018




Advisory Council Member


Board of Directors Member Emeritus

Vaughn Hunkins was awarded the first Loveland SAINT Volunteer of the Year Award in 1995. In 2016, the last year Vaughn drove for SAINT, he received the Lifesaver Award. In 2017, he received the Heart of SAINT award.

In between, he was truly the heart of the Loveland SAINT program. He was a charter member of the program and was instrumental in guiding Loveland SAINT through its formative years. He served on the Loveland Advisory Council for ten years, six as chair. In 1997, he joined the SAINT Board of Directors where he served as treasurer until his passing in 2018.  

In 22 years Vaughn gave over 4,000 rides to his Loveland neighbors – helping those who could not drive stay independent by getting them to the doctor and the grocery store, the senior center, and the hairdresser.  

Vaughn’s enthusiasm for SAINT never wavered. That enthusiasm convinced many friends and acquaintances to become SAINT volunteers. It convinced many strangers too – because Vaughn always gave generously of his time to support SAINT at Corn Roast Festivals and Health Fairs. Everything that Vaughn did, was done with a smile and a charming sense of humor. It is no wonder that he was a favorite with SAINT clients, other board members, and the SAINT staff.  

Vaughn’s community service was not limited to SAINT. He was an active member of the Loveland Golden K Kiwanis Club and treasurer of his church. He was a founder and board member of Loveland’s Community Kitchen. He volunteered with the United Way and Alternatives to Violence.  

SAINT was privileged to call Vaughn a SAINT volunteer for over twenty years.

SAINT Board of Directors

The SAINT Board of Directors consists of community members with backgrounds and interests in transportation and senior issues. The board meets six times a year to review operations and financial results. The board acts as a committee of the whole in evaluating the executive director, establishing policy, and hiring an outside auditor.

President:  Margaret Long

“I am a third-generation Coloradoan raised in Boulder at our family farm Longs Gardens.

I graduated from C.U. Boulder and later obtained an M.P.A. from C.U. Denver.

I worked for forty-four years in human services in six Colorado counties. I spent the last eight years of my career as the Program Manager for the Larimer County Office on Aging.

Throughout my career, I served on many boards and committees and have continued that in the last ten years since I retired. When I was asked to consider joining the SAINT Board of Directors I happily agreed as I had found SAINT to be one of the most cost-effective and impactful nonprofits I had worked with over the years. 

It is my privilege to work with this great organization.”

Margaret joined the board of directors in 2011. Her current term expires in 2025.

SAINT employs four paid staff members.

Our schedulers, one for Fort Collins and one for Loveland, are the link between our clients and our volunteers. They work tirelessly to organize the information needed to provide thousands of rides a month – taking calls from clients, sending schedules to drivers, balancing client needs with driver availability. Since there is no SAINT service without our volunteers, our Volunteer Coordinator is central to keeping SAINT on the road – recruiting, training, and thanking volunteers. Our Executive Director oversees operations and reaches out to the community for the financial support needed to make SAINT run.

Fort Collins Scheduler:  Sue Lamb

Sue has been with SAINT since May 2010. Sue came to SAINT with thirteen years’ experience with the Fort Collins office of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Sue feels strongly about working in the nonprofit sector and understands the heartfelt dedication that is so important in helping those in need. She enjoys getting to know volunteers and clients and the camaraderie that develops among those working for a common purpose.

Loveland Scheduler:  Sally Henry

Sally has been with SAINT since March 2017. When Sally came to SAINT she was looking for a “retirement” job after a long career as a healthcare educator and nonprofit executive. As a former nurse, Sally understands how important it is to keep seniors in their own homes to best serve the individuals and the community.

Volunteer Coordinator:  Theresa Holbrook
