Former Newschannel 5 Anchor Jennifer Blome and Newschannel 5 Weather Anchor Mike Roberts
VOYCE is honored to have Jennifer Blome, former KSDK Newschannel 5 Anchor, and Mike Roberts, Newschannel 5 Weather Anchor, as emcees for the Annual Caregiver Awards Luncheon onThursday, December 3, 2015 at the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel. Jennifer retired from KSDK after 34 years to work in the non-profit world, and try to make a difference in the lives of children, older adults and animals. In her current job, she teaches children about kindness, compassion, empathy and responsible pet ownership.
Jennifer runs the PetReach Program at the Animal Protective Association of Missouri – their volunteers and their dogs visit senior living communities to offer the gift of friendship.
Jennifer is on the advisory board of Lutheran Senior Service’s SENIOR CONNECTIONS program – volunteers are matched to lonely seniors in communities, and commit to one visit a week for one year. Jennifer was a Senior Connections volunteer for 4 years, after doing a story on it and learning there were 7,000 seniors in retirement communities who never had a single visitor.
