Schenectady Today - Volunteer with Catholic Charities
On July 11, 2017, Marlene Hildenbrandt, Executive Director of Catholic Charities Senior & Caregiver Support Services, was a guest on Schenectady Today, hosted by Ann Parrillo. The segment highlighted the programs of the Agency along with a focus on volunteering. Follow the link below to the segment.
We want to encourage and educate our community about the rewards of volunteering with Catholic Charities. The need for volunteers is so great. And the areas of need are so diversified. Someone with as little as two hours per month can make a huge difference to another person in Schenectady or the Capital District. We have seen the impact first hand. Everyone who volunteers with Catholic Charities says that they get more than they give; that they leave their volunteer time with a greater sense of self, and with the reward of helping to change someone’s life for the better!
2017 Schenectady Crop Walk
Catholic Charities Senior & Caregiver Support Services employees and friends participated in this year's Crop Walk in an effort to raise money to fight hunger - one step at a time. The Catholic Charities team raised $1,113 for the cause; well beyond the fundraising target.
A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the walk or donated to the walk. Together we made a difference.
