In conjunction with National Volunteer Week, Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Jamaica Hills held its annual Appreciation Luncheon on April 17 for over 100 individuals.

Margaret Tietz considers itself very fortunate to have a very large volunteer program. Participants include seniors from the community, organizations, Project ReBloom volunteers, synagogues, schools, churches, college interns, yeshiva students, elementary school students and special education students who interact on a daily and weekly basis with the residents and staff to everyone’s appreciation. The center believes these special relationships make Margaret Tietz a very special place.

The administration from many schools were here to also receive recognition for the special contribution their students make. Among the schools present were PS 200, the Queens Transition School and Hillcrest High School.

Debbie Laskin, Tietz’s director of therapeutic recreation, top left, celebrates here with Senta Baum, a weekly volunteer; Audrey Marchand, an administrator; Jay Singh, director of nursing services; and Linda Spiegel, director of public affairs.

Above are members from Project ReBloom under the direction of Sharyn Schnieder and the many community volunteers who have helped to beautify the Margaret Tietz garden.
