MILWAUKEE-Della Bornstein,92,  is Wisconsin's new outstanding senior volunteer.

She seemed truly overwhelmed by all the praise and applause during the ceremony Friday.

She's a long time worker, 30 years to be exact, at the  Jewish Home and Care Center Gift Shop where she says her most important job is offering friendship.

"I want them to get out of their rooms and visit," Bornstein told CBS 58 News, "But the fact that we've made a lot of money to give back to the home is also a bonus."

"Home Instead Senior Care" sponsored the contest and made a $500 donation to the home in Bornstein's name.
