Doris Leiber – March 2014 Volunteer of The Month

Doris Leiber is named March Volunteer of the Month. DMLDoris, who hails from the San Francisco Bay Area, was Judith F. Krug’s aunt and mother of co-founder Scott Leiber.  Every year when she visits the Leiber clan she volunteers at Judith’s Reading Room.  In April, 2013, Judith’s Reading Room honored Doris by agreeing to ship 50 new and gently-read children’s books every other month to the Canandaigua, New York VA hospital.   The hospital reached out to the organization because they said they were seeing many young vets with children, who had nothing to read in the waiting rooms.  Dedicating these shipments to Canandaigua was a natural because Doris is a native New Yorker, a veteran of WW II and a mother of five!  Doris, a member of the Greatest Generation and Navy veteran, WWII, where she served as a WAVE based in the Bay Area, will turn 91 in August.  Thank you, Doris, for your service to our country and to Judith’s Reading Room!
