Numbers tell the story when we talk about giving the gift of time. In the last year alone, over 3,500 volunteers contributed more than 14,000 hours of service to Clearbrook.
Whether in respite care, special events, client activities, programs or everyone’s favorite – Jelly Belly Days – Clearbrook is only as strong as our volunteer base! Volunteers give out of the goodness of their hearts but it is important to us as an agency to recognize that goodness and express our appreciation for the selfless work of so many. On Tuesday, June 27th, it was our pleasure to celebrate all Clearbrook volunteers and our 2017 Volunteer award winners. The 2017 recipients are as follows:
Alan J. Acierno, DDS was presented with the “Leap of Faith Award” for providing essential dental care to our Clearbrook clients. “Dr. AJ” as he is affectionately known by our clients, and his practice, DecisionOne Dental host an annual “A Reason To Smile” program based out of their Schaumburg location to provide screenings and cleanings for more than 20 Clearbrook residents in an on-going effort to support their commitment to people with disabilities.
