Calling all superheroes!
On April 6th, 2017 Merrick’s Volunteer Recognition & Awards celebrated the accomplishments of the more than 600 Merrick volunteers and partners that served the East Side community in 2016. These selfless superheroes shared their exceptional talents and gave hundreds of hours of their time to make Merrick’s work possible. The event featured live music, raffle drawings, a catered dinner showcasing recipes from the Meals on Wheels program, and the presentation of program and agency awards. Each service program honored an outstanding volunteer and Executive Director Daniel A. Rodriguez presented the Dick McCarthy Award, the Mary Virginia Merrick Award, and the newly renamed 3M Legacy Award.
