Community Member of the Month

Robert Wallan is April’s “Community Member of the Month.” Robert is a graduate of Owego Free Academy and the proud brother of an Army soldier. When he isn’t drawing or working on model cars, tanks, airplanes, or boats, Robert serves as a dedicated volunteer at Tioga Opportunities, Inc. in our Nutrition programs. Robert was drawn to volunteering in order to gain experience for employment. He found helping people to be so rewarding that he continues to volunteer even since becoming employed.

Robert encourages everyone to take the journey as a volunteer. He stressed that he was very glad that he did. It is an experience that provides improvement for the community and others, but for himself as well. Robert plays a vital role in our Home Delivered Meals and Congregate Dining programs. His dedication of time helps older adults receive nutritious meals right in their homes or while enjoying the company of others at the Countryside Community Center.

Tioga Opportunities, Inc. is very fortunate to have wonderful people like Robert volunteering their time to contribute to a stronger community. Currently, Tioga Opportunities, Inc. is seeking volunteers to assist with delivering meals to homebound older adults and to help individuals with transportation needs. If you are interested in learning more about volunteering at Tioga Opportunities, Inc., please contact 607-687-4120, ext. 315.
