On Thursday August 2, the volunteers of the FJC were honored with a picnic at Stiglmeier Park in Cheektowaga. Under picture-perfect blue skies, more than forty FJC staff and volunteers gathered to enjoy great food, drink and camaraderie. Domestic advocate and volunteer coordinator, Jaclyn Strycharz, and her mom, Cindy Chentfant organized the event which included a barbeque with all the fixings.
Dan Barone, a supporter who helps out with meals at his local church, volunteered his time to grill hot dogs and chicken for the event. The celebration gave volunteers from all the FJC locations a chance to get together. The heartfelt time that volunteers give to the FJC are crucial to providing services to more than 2,000 new clients seen each year at the center and satellite locations.
Thank you all for choosing to give your valuable time to support the Family Justice Center and the domestic abuse victims who seek safety.
