Rita has volunteered at the Bergen Volunteer Center and Hackensack University Medical Center as a way of giving back her time to assist others in need. She says “ I have gained much experience and knowledge over the years in various areas and disciplines and I am pleased to share that with many”. Rita started volunteering years ago while planning for retirement. It makes her feel useful.
For Rita being a part of the Bergen Volunteer Center's Mentoring Moms program and spending time with moms who need a helping hand, encouraging words and validation that they are cared for, is the best part of it all. At Celebrate Volunteers back in March, Rita received a certificate of recognition from the Mentoring Moms program and the Bergen Volunteer Center as they celebrated volunteers.
