LIAAC is fortunate to have over 20 volunteers from YAI- Young Adults Institute and James E. Allen BOCES come to our headquarters for a couple of hours every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the year to assist our staff. The volunteers are a delightful group of students aided by their dedicated teachers who provide assistance to our agency by performing office work such as shredding, processing mailings, photocopying documents, and helping in the food pantry. In the past year alone, these volunteers have devoted an astonishing 800 plus hours of service to LIAAC.
Having the volunteers do the never ending tasks of shredding aids in keeping our offices cleaner and less cluttered. By processing the frequent mailings to our clients, it has helped to keep our clients informed of the vital services available they so desperately need. All the photocopying of documents, as well as printing hundreds of flyers for mailings etc. by the volunteers, affords our staff more time to provide support to our clients and enhance our programs. Each and every nutritionally balanced pantry bag packed by a volunteer helps provide food to yet another hungry family. The volunteer's assistance in all these areas is invaluable.
The entire staff of LIAAC would like to offer many thanks to all of these wonderful volunteers!
