In celebration of Volunteer Appreciation Week (April 7th-13th) a breakfast celebration was held today at CP Nassau.

Melissa Berthel, Coordinator of Volunteers put together a lovely event filled with delicious food and creative decorations. Quoting Robert Ingersoll, Melissa told the group, ”We rise by lifting others.”  She went on to thank all the volunteers for the great work they do.  Executive Director Bob McGuire and Assistant Executive Director, Karen Geller-Hittleman also thanked the volunteers and stated that we could not carry out our mission without the valuable assistance that volunteers provide so generously.  In a message to the staff at CP Nassau, Melissa commented, “If you are lucky enough to have a volunteer in your department, or if you happen to run into one of our wonderful volunteers from the Curiosity Shop, the mail room, the switchboard or anywhere in between, please take a moment to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication to our agency!  They are such an important part of CP Nassau and we are so lucky to have them!”
