Volunteer recognition luncheon

On Friday, Sep. 23  a volunteer luncheon will be held at Mallozzi’s Clubhouse at the Western Turnpike Golf Course. This lunch is to express gratitude to all volunteers for giving their time to help others.

The groups to be honored:

— The Guilderland Interfaith Food Pantry. Monday through Friday volunteers accept donations and distributes food to those who do not have enough food to eat;

— The Home Delivered Meal. Monday through Friday volunteers deliver daily meals to homebound senior citizens in the community to help them live independently in their homes. Adequate nutrition is critical in maintaining health, functioning, and management of disease. Your friendly hello and shared moments together help reduce isolation and provides the senior with a sense of being checked-in-on each day;

— AARP Tax Aide Program. Savvy volunteers spend many hours training and getting certified in cooperation with the IRS to prepare personal Federal and New York State  income tax returns for taxpayers of all ages with low & moderate incomes.

— Guilderland volunteers. Senior citizens who give their time generously offering a variety of activities:

  • Many members of our needlecraft group knit/crochet hats and scarves, blankets, baby layettes, and lap robes for those in need of warmth. These items are collected and distributed to hospitals, nursing homes and shelters;
  • Our Strong Bones Plus osteoporosis prevention class leaders offer their time two days a week leading this important exercise class. This class is not limited to exercise; many friendships have been made in these classes that have lasted throughout the years;
  • Our Tuesday lunch program has their share of volunteers willing to help; consisting of meal servers, bingo caller/assistants, raffle volunteers and a registered nurse to provide blood pressure readings. This program is a nutritious social day out that many enjoy and hate to miss.
