2015 Volunteer Luncheon

Posted on: Apr 24, 2015

The Philadelphia Protestant Home is honored to celebrate 125 years of dedicated, volunteer service. Volunteers have served our community faithfully since it’s founding in 1890. In 2014, our volunteers donated 46,000 hours of service to our community. Each year, during the month of April, we hold a luncheon to celebrate the many hours of time and commitment our volunteers give to our community. Whether it’s working in our gift shop, collating our internal newsletter, being a member of our day and evening craft groups, visiting residents and transporting them to appointments, or the Auxiliary hosting spaghetti or pork and sauerkraut dinners our volunteers are essential to the friendly and giving atmosphere of our community.

It is noted that volunteering benefits both the volunteer and the recipient. By volunteering your time you increase the quality of your life. We hope when you share your time and talents, the gift you give yourself is a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction for the gift of touching the lives of both our residents and staff.

During “National Volunteer Month” we are proud to thank our PPh volunteers with this year’s luncheon, “PPh Celebrates 125 Years.” The luncheon, held in our social hall, included raffle prizes, recognition speeches, a delicious meal and entertainment provided by our own PPh staff. The entertainment was comprised of 10 acts which were reenactments of favorites from years prior.  “I Got You Babe,” “I Dreamed A Dream,” “A Bushel & A Peck,” and “Who’s On First” to name a few, evoked many laughs and appreciation from the audience.

Thank you to everyone who made this special day a success for our very special volunteers and a huge thank you to our volunteers…your commitment to continue the service of those who came before you is truly appreciated.

2015 Volunteer Luncheon – PPh Celebrates 125 Years!

 

 

What Residents Say

"In my two years at PPh, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPh Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPh while experiencing the offers here.….especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPh, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of residents Jack & Bernice Segal
