Busy Volunteers!

The holidays are a very busy time for the volunteer department at Senior
Services. Food and gifts deliveries are coordinated and our volunteers are there to help!

Members of the EV Free Church are shown ready to help with pack up the cars of volunteers as they arrived.

Bright and early Saturday, December 22nd members of the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program and other volunteers, arrived at the EV Church in Crystal Lake to pick up food packages provided by the generosity of the church members and Meijer in McHenry. Thank you to the church who arranged for amazing packages of food to be donated to seniors and their families all over McHenry County. A total of 33 homes were visited and ready to accept the offering. The responses to the gifts were nothing short of delight. Thanks to Jerry Macey who remembers our senior clients each year!

Senior Services/RSVP Volunteers who helped this year were; Ruth Coleman, Hildie Aucoin, John Wooster, Alice Barnett, Warren Cotton, Edna Naughton, Mark Heckmon, Kristina Danitz with Jeremey and Parker Bates.
Gina LeFevour of Woodstock made some local seniors happy with her Christmas deliveries.
Parker Bates presented a card and ornament to Lynn in Woodstock along with her food package.
Beth Gricus and Edna Naughton, both of McHenry of are always willing to help with deliveries. “Dashing through the snow”…well not this day. They are weighed down with packages and maps and is ready to go into the community and play “Santa”.
RSVP Volunteers Butch & Sue Meyer, Edna Naughton, Gina LeFevour, Beth Gricus, Alice Barnett and George Steffan delivered gifts throughout the county. 25 homes were visited by RSVP volunteers bringing gifts.

This annual giving program was thanks to Holy Apostle Church members, Meijer McHenry, and Bowes In-Home Care.

Thanks to these amazing folks Christmas was a little nicer knowing the community cares.
