Chairman Alden H. Wolfe was recently honored by Chaverim of Rockland at their annual Member Appreciation Dinner. Chaverim, a volunteer, not-for-profit organization, is equipped to handle various non-medical emergencies including roadside assistance, neighborhood watch, disaster crisis management and provide assistance upon request, to local law enforcement agencies. In 2013, Chaverim volunteers responded to more than 17,000 calls for assistance.
“Chaverim’s trained volunteers respond to many needs and keep a watchful eye on the community,” said Chairman Wolfe. “Their presence in the community and the knowledge that volunteers will respond swiftly to calls for assistance is immensely reassuring to our residents. It is truly an honor for me to be recognized for my service by this organization, whose members unselfishly put the needs of their neighbors first and foremost.”
