As we begin a new year and conclude another successful Share the Love campaign, we would like to take the opportunity to thank the Marist College students and in particular the leadership of the North Road Communications team for their dedication and assistance throughout 2016. The team did a fantastic job of not only producing very professional materials and social media posts, but were also instrumental in securing press and media coverage to raise awareness of our mission. Students from across the Marist community and athletic teams brought much joy when they volunteered for meal delivery, helped provide Blizzard Bags for our clients and produced a video of our volunteer luncheon. Thank you Marist team! We look forward to working with you again in 2017! Happy New Year to all! #SharetheLove
On November 30th, Meals on Wheels of Greater Hyde Park gave thanks to all of our volunteers with a Subaru Share the Love luncheon in the fellowship hall of the United Methodist Church of Hyde Park. The luncheon was held to honor the dedication and service of our volunteers.
“I don’t know any more about how electricity works than I do about volunteers. I just know when I flip the light switch, the room becomes brighter. When volunteers do what they do, the world becomes a better, brighter place to be. Thank you volunteers,” said Jack Fenton, our Board President.
There were 83 people in attendance including volunteers, staff, board members, and other guests. We would like to give a special thanks to Lewis Ruge of Ruge’s Subaru for attending, NY State Senator Sue Serino and Hyde Park Supervisor Aileen Rohr for joining us. We thank you for your continued support of our organization! Excellent food and a great time was enjoyed by all!
