Thank you, Nina Miller, for helping senior citizens in all sorts of ways through At Home In Darien.
We hope others join you.
—This article is part of a series of daily articles profiling the volunteers recognized in May at the Darien annual volunteer recognition luncheon organized by the Community Fund of Darien.
Nina Miller’s Efforts
Nina enjoys being active in the Darien community and is a shining example of the quintessential volunteer. She always offers her time and experience to assist senior citizens in Darien to keep them connected to the community.
Whether a senior needs a ride or a light bulb changed, when phone calls need to be made or mailings need to go out, Nina is the first to offer her help, and always with a smile!
Nina is an outstanding, and much appreciated, volunteer for At Home In Darien and we are fortunate to have her support our efforts!

About This Series
- The profiles in this series were presented at the 2019 volunteer recognition luncheon held at the Darien Community Association and recorded (in this video) by Darien TV79.
- Darien runs on volunteers — from our churches to our town government, schools, political parties, sports teams, three fire departments and our local nonprofits. They’re the largest part of what makes this town a community. We should all encourage them and thank them.
- Darienite.com is running this series now, while more people are thinking about whether they want to volunteer in the upcoming year. We may run it sooner after the next event, in 2020.
- Each article presents the description provided about that volunteer (or sometimes more than one) as provided by an organization that benefited from that person’s efforts.
