Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas'

Volunteers of the Month:
Marla Drees

February 2014

Marla Drees came to Catholic Charities when she joined the Olathe Ladies Auxiliary in 2006.  She had retired after 25 years as an RN and wanted to continue being active.  During her career Marla worked for various hospitals, private physicians and occupational medical clinics.  When her husband, Ken, passed away in 2011 she knew she needed to fill more of her time.  That is when she started to volunteer weekly at both the reception desk and the Clothing Closet at the Olathe EAC.  Marla has been on the volunteer schedule and has traveled with the Resource Bus about every six weeks since it began in 2012.  Over the years Marla also assisted in addressing invitations to the Snow Ball and golf tournament.  She has served as treasurer for the Ladies Auxiliary for the past two years and began her second two-year term in May.  She is a member of Prince of Peace.  Marla is a valuable volunteer and we are so appreciative of her help in Olathe.
