Larry Eckstein — Holiday Package Deliveries Volunteer
DOROT volunteer since: Spring of 1989
How did you get involved with DOROT?
I read an article concerning DOROT in a publication at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue and discussed it with an assistant rabbi, who spoke very highly about the various programs, as well as the benefits that are provided to those who receive services.
What type of volunteer activities do you do at DOROT?
In addition to Package Deliveries, I escort seniors to vote and extend invitations to special events. I have also served on the Volunteer Advisory Committee.
In what ways has your DOROT volunteer experience impacted your life?
I have been continuously impressed by the gratification expressed by persons who experience the wonderful assistance that is given by the DOROT staff.
What motivates you to continue volunteering at DOROT?
As a longtime employee of the New York City Human Resources Administration, I have observed persons living in unfortunate situations. DOROT offers an additional method of helping them.
Most memorable volunteer moment?
Actually, each type of contact remains extremely special, instead of only one or several.
What would you want other volunteers to know about volunteering at DOROT?
They will receive excellent advice and guidance from DOROT’s staff.
