Thursday, April 21st was a special day at Cabrini of Westchester as we honored our dedicated volunteers with a blessing ceremony and luncheon. Pastoral Care Director, Fr. Ron Galt bestowed a beautiful blessing upon all during the ceremony and afterward, a barbecue luncheon was provided thanks to Director of Food Service, Daryl Foriest and his staff.
Cabrini’s volunteers are people who donate their time, skills and talents to support our programs and services. They lend a hand wherever help is needed, from transporting the residents to and from daily Mass, working in the Gift Shop, helping with clerical administrative tasks and so much more!
While addressing the group at the blessing ceremony, Bonnie Burke, Vice President of Operations and Administrator stated, “This year’s theme for National Volunteer Recognition Week is ‘Empathy and Action’ which describes you all perfectly. This means as a volunteer you are caring and you understand and share the feelings of your fellow human beings in their times of need. Bringing such wonderful attributes to the residents shows an excellence of character that we want to be sure to appreciate and recognize always, but especially today. From all of us at Cabrini, thank you for your empathy and action, for your heartfelt efforts and hard work to make a difference every day that you are here.” ~ submitted by Susan Herceg, Director of Development and Public Relations
