MAC Volunteer Stock Shelves for People Living with AIDS

Once again our incredible friends from MAC Cosmetics came to the rescue of our food pantry for people living with HIV/AIDS in Nassau County. Quick as super heroes, they unloaded a truck stuffed with cases and cases of nutritious food. Three hours of unpacking/labeling food and stocking shelves later, they were gone, leaving the pantry filled to the brim. Thank you, MAC volunteers!

VIBS Presents on Elder Abuse to Educate Respite Companions

Recently, Donna Buccellato, Elder Abuse Educator for the Victims Information Bureau of Suffolk (VIBS), conducted a presentation for the team in our In-Home Respite Services program. The feedback was very positive, as the workshop created greater awareness of the complicated issues surrounding elder abuse and will also allow our companions to be more alert to problems they may encounter in clients’ homes.
