Six Catholic Charities Community Services of Dutchess County volunteers just received President’s Volunteer Service Awards, the nation’s premier volunteer award, reports the Poughkeepsie Journal. Mary Marshall, the agency’s director, presented the awards to Rae Byrne, Joan Doherty, Dorothy Milliot, John Milliot, Pegeen Wall and Paula Williams for more than 100 hours of volunteer service completed in the past year.

“We are very proud of our volunteers – it is a significant accomplishment to log 100 or more service hours a year,” said Marshall. “As a not-for-profit human service agency committed to providing assistance to individuals and families in need, the support from our volunteers is invaluable to the success of our programs. We are extremely grateful that these volunteers share their time and talent with us and congratulate each of them on this well-deserved recognition,” added Marshall.

Catholic Charities is a resource for needy families and individuals, offering a variety of free and professionally- administered direct services to Dutchess County residents, both Catholic and non-Catholic.

Last year, CCCSDC assisted more than 1,100 individuals. Offices are located at 218 Church Street, Poughkeepsie; more information is available by calling 845-452-1400.
