Each year, our Good Neighbor Awards honor some of the dedicated neighbors who volunteer their time to help seniors and people with disabilities get the resources and support they need to age and thrive in their own homes and neighborhoods. We are delighted to honor Alice as our 2019 Good Neighbor Honoree for the Sunnyside Community Connectors.
Patti Spaniak nominated Alice for the Good Neighbor Award for her help in establishing the CLC senior program at St. Finn Barr Church. “Alice was instrumental in getting the program started at the church. She continues to help us navigate and engage the community.”
Alice has been involved with the Sunnyside community for a number of years. She’s working on many projects that promote community involvement. “I like combining people with common interests in fun, and fulfilling activities,” she shares.
Although Alice is very busy with her catering company, she still likes to volunteer. She believes it’s a chance for her to give something back to the community, and make it a better place. “Helping out with projects and being there for people who need a helping hand can make a real difference in people’s lives,” Alice states. “And it’s a good way to make new friends!”
