The weather could not have been more perfect on Sunday, April 7, for a celebration. New Rochelle Cares AIP held a dessert reception at the home of two very generous donors to honor of its volunteers, donors, partners and sponsors. In addition to an array of delicious pastries and fruit, guests were treated to two musical performances. Michael Hull and Robert Puleo performed several operatic selections. Then, a delightful doo-wop group, Gray Matters, whose members include New Rochelle Cares AIP member Louise Wood, performed.
Among those in attendance were several local politicians who have been supportive of New Rochelle Cares AIP since its launch in November of 2015. County Executive George Latimer has attended every major event since the group’s founding. NY State Assemblyman Steve Otis was instrumental in the organization’s receipt of a grant from the NY State Office of the Aging. Mayor Noam Bramson has also attended the group’s major events, and formally recognized the organization by proclaiming November 1, 2018, New Rochelle Cares AIP Appreciation Day in New Rochelle. And Damon Maher, a county legislator, has been a generous donor.
New Rochelle Cares AIP is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), volunteer run organization. They are dedicated to giving New Rochelle residents 60 and over the support they need to remain in their own homes as they age, while remaining connected to the community. The most critical factor to healthy aging is connection to community. In the three and a half years since starting operations, they have provided 1345 rides to their members and presented a wide variety of educational and social programs. Their goal is to provide services to at least 200 of New Rochelle’s nearly 20,000 seniors and to truly embody their motto – Neighbors Helping Neighbors.
