In recognition of National Volunteer Week, the Little Sisters of the Poor honored their dedicated volunteers at an appreciation luncheon on Wednesday, April 26, in the café of Holy Family Residence.
Following the stuffed chicken luncheon, the Little Sisters and Activities Director and Volunteer Coordinator Lisa Blaker presented each volunteer with a thank you gift.
The Little Sisters, who have been serving the elderly of Northeastern Pennsylvania since 1908, work closely with staff, volunteers, and benefactors to create a family spirit for the residents who make their home with them. They welcome the elderly who have limited funds and provide for their needs so they can thrive in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and love.
