January's Employee and Volunteer of the Month - Tri-County Services
At Catholic Charities, we're once again recognizing our “CC Heroes” – our staff and volunteers who work tirelessly in service of our neighbors. Each month, we're honoring a staff person and a volunteer from a different Catholic Charities agency and highlighting their work.
This month, we're pleased to recognize Rick Taglieri and Renee Wendover from Catholic Charities Tri-County Services.
Rick is at Catholic Charities' Roarke center every Tuesday without fail. He has been a reliable volunteer and friend all year round, helping to unload food, welcome clients and stock the shelves. We are so appreciative of Rick's generosity, kindness and commitment to his community:
Renee works as the Program Coordinator at Catholic Charities' Sister Maureen Joyce Center, overseeing both the Food Pantry and the Soup Kitchen. She does everything - from coordinating food deliveries to leading our volunteers. Renee is known for going the extra mile to make our guests feel welcome and we are truly grateful for her:
Each year, Catholic Charities honors one program with the Kathleen Picotte Award. Kathleen Picotte embodied the mission of Catholic Charities through her generosity and concern for the vulnerable. This month, we're highlighting the award finalist from Tri-County Services, the agency's summer camps: Camp Scully and Sunnyside Center. Each year, these camps provide children from different backgrounds the chance to grow, learn and have fun with their peers.
