For the fourth year in a row, the Boo Squad Fund has made it their mission to help over 200 families with Thanksgiving meals. “Many families have members who have been laid off from work and are struggling because of Covid-19,” stated Dr. Heather Hrina-Medvec, Boo Squad director. “The goal of this mission is to teach our youth to be thankful. Thankful for many day-to-day needs that we all take for granted.” The Boo Squad is a volunteer group for children ages 7-13. The Boo Squad teaches our children about teamwork, volunteerism, and compassion.
The 2019 President Volunteer Service Award Winners were handed out by Brenda Rider on December 7 to Cheryl Altizer, Janet Rogers & Julie McAllister Vugrinovich. “It’s very important to continue the tradition and recognize the kindness of others. So many volunteers work quietly to make a difference and the PVSA honors just that,” stated Brenda Rider. The Spano Foundation will be the sponsored organization for this award moving forward.
