Luncheon Celebrating Senior Citizens Center Volunteers

Senior Citizens Volunteers

Smithtown Senior Citizens Department Recognizes Over 100 Volunteers

On August 28th, the Town of Smithtown Senior Citizens Department honored over 100 volunteers for their hard work and service to the Senior Citizens Center. Councilwoman Lisa Inzerillo and Senior Citizens Department employees presented each volunteer with a certificate of appreciation and thanks.

“Volunteers not only provide an invaluable service, but also their very presence is a testimonial to the dignity and worth of the older adults we serve. Their willingness to help their senior neighbors in need is demonstrated throughout the year.  Beyond the physical work they accomplish, is the connection and impact they make on a personal level in the relationships that are formed with our seniors. We can’t thank them enough for the work they do and for the joy, friendships and willing hearts that they bring.” - Councilwoman Lisa Inzerillo

The Senior Citizens Department volunteers have generously reached out to the Smithtown community in many ways – delivering meals, donating quilts and needlework projects to veterans, hospitals, nursing homes and homeless shelters, as well as activities at the center such as Bingo, Garden Club, Video Exercise and operating the boutique. The Center Committee volunteers support the Senior Citizens Department via fundraisers throughout the year and through the annual Tender Years Treasury.

“Our first volunteer luncheon consisted of approximately 12 volunteers. This year’s luncheon included over 100 volunteers! I am extremely proud, and so thankful for the generosity of these amazing people who give freely of their time and generously from their hearts.” - Laura Greif, Senior Citizens Department Program Director

Several volunteers have devoted an extensive length of service to the Senior Center, with some serving as volunteers for more than 25 years.   

For further information regarding this event or on becoming a volunteer, call the Senior Center at 631-360-7616.
