Gratefully acknowledging the many volunteers who dedicate their time, talents, and energy to make a difference in the community.
Each month, I pause to reflect on the generosity of your care and concern for our neighbors. Last month, I had the opportunity to share your story, connections and impact that you’re making in your neighborhood. It’s been such an honor to collaborate with partners like you, who are strengthening our community. Thanks to your actions, older adults across Western New York have access to transportation for their medical, social, and wellness appointments. We’re making connections and reducing social isolation among older adults. Most importantly we’re empowering older adults to age how they want to age and in which setting they choose to age in, whether it’s in the home, assisted living, or with family.
You’re keeping people independent and connected, and that is awe inspiring. As we enter into the last month of our annual campaign, I am privileged to tell your story and how you’re making a difference. I am inspired by those in the community moved to action through your leadership.
As we wind down the year, I want to again THANK YOU for all the work you’ve done this year. We have accomplished much, and I can’t wait to recap your efforts in our February newsletter. I hope you all enjoy the holiday season with your family, and I look forward to partnering with you again in 2023 because together, we see neighbors serving neighbors to foster community connections, live independent and healthy lives.
A look back at our Ugly Sweater Holiday Party! It was wonderful seeing everyone, and thank you to the volunteers who brought a Care Receiver. Take a peak at our Facebook Page to see all the photos from the party!
Stay tuned for our next event!
Please note that the Hearts and Hands offices will be closed December 21st-January 2nd. We ask that all care receiver requests are called in for trips/services through January 6, 2023 no later than Wednesday, December 14th. This will allow adequate time to fill requests before we close.
We ask that you encourage care receivers to call in requests needed through January 6th as they will not be accepted after December 14th. Thank you!
I'm Tabitha Fisher, Director of Program Services and Coordinator of Volunteer Services for Eastern Erie, Niagara Frontier, and the Southern Tier. I was born and raised in Akron, NY. Growing up I always knew I wanted to help people, but wasn't sure exactly how until I became familiar with Hearts and Hands. I started with Hearts and Hands in high school by cleaning offices. In college, I completed my internship with the agency and started working with Care Receivers. It was then that I realized, this is my calling.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, playing games, camping, fishing, and swimming. I love the outdoors and anything that has to do with water. I also enjoy collecting dolphins.
