The United Way’s Day of Caring is a day like no other. This year we broke our record for participation. We set out with 17 volunteers, 3 projects, and, although it was hard work, we also managed to have a great time!
Maria Scappaticci, Denise Cremard and Kim Fanning volunteered at the Dallas Active Adult Center where they painted the benches in front of the Center where the members sit and wait for transportation.
Janet Skibinski, Melissa Testa, Tim O’Shea, Michelle Perry and Janice Smakulski spent time at the Center for Economic Opportunity (CEO) packing food for distribution.
Jack Windt, Jim Jones, Jon Canfield, Jake Harris, Kathy Fedder, Tom Medura, Justin Heffner, John O’Boyle and Todd Rothermel helped out at YMCA Camp Kresge where they framed four decks, installed deck top boards, and also cut and installed four sets of steps. The existing embankment was becoming too dangerous for the children to walk up and down. The team did a great job. It was a hard, tough task to complete in one day, but they got it done!
Congratulations to Team Mayhem, Inc. (Jen Davis, Rob Obuhosky, Bill Sordoni, and Joe Yusinski), winners of the March Mayhem competition! Geisinger sponsors this state-wide activity-based competition where teams from different employers across Pennsylvania compete for the most steps by tracking physical activity and participating in surprise overtime challenges throughout the month of March. This year we had 4 teams of 4 walkers each and a total of 5,327,347 steps! Denise Cremard from team TEMPS took home the trophy with a whopping 485,674 steps. Congratulations Denise!
Our Field of Honor
If you follow us on Facebook, you can’t help but notice how much we love our community and our veterans. This Memorial Day, our Sordoni Volunteer Program (SVP) Committee developed a project that touched the hearts and souls of our employees. All were given the opportunity to purchase a 12″ flag for $5 in honor or memory of a loved one who served or serves in the military. We raised $600 and the proceeds from the sale of these flags were donated to Support Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that provides support to active duty troops and their families worldwide. The flags were displayed on our lawn at the corner of Owen and Murray Streets along with the names of those they represented. With hearts filled with gratitude and 108 Flags displayed, we paid tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice and honored those who serve and have served this great country. Although we love our Sordoni orange, nothing can compare to the Red, White and Blue.
