A Day of Caring to focus on helping seniors in York County
Volunteers from York County Community College and Sanford High School (National Honor Society students) converged on the YCCAC office complex at Spruce Street on Wednesday morning, June 7th, to do landscaping work in the gardens and detail work on the busses and trolleys. Their labor—it was the annual Day of Caring, a United Way-sponsored event—helped to brighten the front and side gardens after the long winter, and to get the busses and trolleys ready for the summer crowd.
“All our volunteers were exceptional,” said Ericka Sanborn, YCCAC’s volunteer coordinator, who, along with Andrew Lederer, YCCAC operations/special initiatives manager, oversaw the volunteer effort.
The value of services provided by the volunteers totaled $1,153.50. “We were also able to secure some great partnerships with the Sanford High School Honor Society for future opportunities related to volunteerism in our agency,” said Lederer in an email.
The work wrapped up with a cookout in the rear parking lot. Thanks to all who helped make this event such a terrific success!
YCCAC volunteers make it a baseball night at Goodall Park
The Sanford Mainers hosted the Vermont Mountaineers Monday, July 10th, at Goodall Park for a baseball showdown that ended with a 3 to 1 victory for the hometown team.
Tending the ballpark concession stand from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. were YCCAC employees Ericka Sanborn, Robin Bibber, Heidi Walker Jackson, Carter Friend, Marie Mondello, and Mesha Quinn.
“We had a great time,” said Ms. Sanborn, who as YCCAC volunteer coordinator arranges volunteer groups to help with community projects and events. “It was a really nice way to meet some of the local crowd, and also for us to represent YCCAC in the community.”
