“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
As part of National Volunteer Recognition Month in April, Senior Concerns took some time to recognize those volunteers who help keep our programs running.
Susan Premo was named Meals On Wheels Driver of the Year. Susan drives a weekly route and also serves as a substitute driver when needed. Along with the meals she delivers to homebound seniors, Susan always delivers a positive “can-do” attitude. She does whatever she can to brighten each senior’s day, knowing that for many of the Meals On Wheels clients Susan is the only person they see.
“Susan is truly tender hearted and cares about the people she serves. She knows each of them on an individual level and considers them her friends,” says Lisa Weaver, Director of Nutrition Services. “We are honored to have Susan on our Meals On Wheels team.
Paul Siegal has been a volunteer in the Senior Concerns Adult Day Program since 2007. Paul has been a dedicated volunteer assisting in anything the program needs including transferring participants, decorating for occasions, shredding papers and even sitting as a companion with participants. The one thing everyone agrees about is that Paul will gladly do anything he is asked with willingness. When he walks into the center the staff lights up and knows he is there to help.
We all are so grateful for Paul’s consistency, kindness and contribution to making the Day Program run smoothly.
