Bravo Ginna!

During award shows, like the Oscars or Emmys, the orchestra plays an important, but somewhat awkward role. When the recipient of an award is going on and on, the orchestra has to begin playing and interrupt the award winner to let them know they are taking too much time. We don’t have this problem at the Humanitarian Service Project (which is good because we couldn’t afford an orchestra anyway.) The people we want to recognize are always so very deserving, and humble, you would never be able to characterize any of them as long winded. Such was the case today, as we showed our appreciation for a volunteer of ours that more than deserves special recognition, our volunteer Secret Pal Coordinator Ginna Ericksen. Ginna has been helping with our Secret Pal Program for quite some time now, and volunteered to help us a lot more this season to organize, not only the Secret Pal Program for the seniors, but also the giving trees going to the seniors. Ginna stepped up right at a time when we really needed her, and has performed well above and beyond the call of duty. We were very happy to take a little time out to recognize Ginna today, to thank her for all she has done for the sake of the needy seniors we serve!

We thought today would be the perfect day to thank Ginna, as today represented the culmination of all of her hard, and generous, work. Today was the gift delivery day to the 120 needy seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. All of the generous gifts provided by the seniors’ secret pals, and other bighearted, giving tree donors went out the door to make the holiday season a little more special for the seniors. We want to thank all of the wonderful volunteers and donors who made it possible for us to reach out to all of our seniors this Christmas. Your generosity has made a huge impact in the lives of those who desperately need it.
