Commack Community Members Keep Grandfriends Club Alive

Commack Community Association donated $250 to the school activity, that builds relationships between seniors and high school students.

The Commack Community Association voted Thursday to donate $250 to the high school's Grandfriends club, a volunteer activity, in which students interact with and help senior citizens at the Gurwin Geriatric Center.

Gurwin will match the donation, in order to pay for the program, which was one of several clubs cut from the school district's budget.

The club makes it possible for high school students to build relationships with the senior citizen community by joining in games of bingo, nail painting and putting on holiday parties for the Gurwin residents. The Grandfriends Club has also helped to put together a senior prom for those they volunteer with.

There are no special talents needed to be a hero to someone else. The simple act of sharing your time with another can make a world of difference. The only talent..or power...you need is the power to want to make a difference. We all have that power within us. How one uses that power defines you. Team Dawg salutes the power of these Everyday Heroes!
