PACE CNY Recognizes the
2021 Volunteer of the Year
Congratulations to Megan Lafferty, PACE CNY’s Volunteer of the Year!
Megan Lafferty is a second-year medical student in the College of Medicine at SUNY Upstate Medical University. She is currently interested in studying family medicine and geriatrics. Despite a rigorous class schedule, Megan finds the time to come to the PACE CNY clinical day center to engage with participants. Megan helps with memory care interventions, socialization, and has helped to put together End of Life care packages for caregivers.
Megan’s favorite hobbies include reading and spending time with family and friends. Her favorite discussion topics with participants involve books, daily activities, and school. Megan’s favorite part of her volunteer experience is sitting and talking with the participants. She likes listening to their individual stories and feels that many of the participants have taught her valuable life lessons.
Thank you Megan! #NationalVolunteerMonth #VolunteeroftheYear
Helping Hands Volunteers are peers helping peers. Pace Participants lend a helping hand by setting up bingo, 1:1 visits, picking up the tables after lunch, IT help, and overall give support to Therapeutic Recreation, the Day Center, and PACE Participants. Thank you for all your hard work, it is appreciated!
High School and College student volunteers play an integral role in PACE CNY Summer Programming!
