Giving Thanks: a Two-way Street
Why is the Senior Companion Program important to me? My involvement with the SCP began when my mother started to receive visits from a program volunteer. I quickly realized how much my parent looked forward to these visits, and how much her visitor, a wonderfully caring and compassionate nun, was able to lift her spirits. Some time later, I began working with the program as a visitor and serving on committees. I know the support that SCP provides is appreciated. Visitees and their families often express their thanks directly or with cards, letters or donations.
Volunteers Benefit from their Visitees
This is my opportunity to let our senior visitees know how thankful we are for all they give back to us. Our SCP staff and volunteers really do have lots to be grateful for; after all, we benefit all year long from the very special and unique gifts we receive from our Senior Companion visitees.
