On Sunday, September 16, over 20 members of the Young Professionals of Greater New York (YPGNY) brought smiles and cheer to the residents of the New York Armenian Home in Queens.
This “YPs Give Back” event gave volunteers the chance to spend quality time talking, playing board games, and Armenian dancing with nursing home residents. One of the residents even gave back to the YPs with a piano recital of his own!
In addition to spending time with the residents, several YPs also raked leaves, trimmed trees, and collected garbage to beautify the outdoor areas around the Home. Overall, the experience was not only a worthwhile humanitarian effort, but also facilitated networking amongst the Armenian young professionals community. - AH
