DAR Community Service Award Winner Honored

Updated: Jul 17, 2020

The Melzingah Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution presented a Community Service Award to Chapter member Barbara Ulrich-Giaimo at their May 9th meeting at the Madam Brett Homestead in Beacon for her volunteer work with the “No Veteran Dies Alone” program at Castle Point VA Hospital.

"No Veteran Dies Alone” volunteers tend to the bedsides of seriously ill veterans who have neither family nor close friends to be with them, or they provide respite to loved ones who need to run errands, make appointments or simply take a break. Volunteers go through extensive training with the VA hospice and palliative care teams. Ms. Giaimo has been actively volunteering with this program since 2014, generously giving up many nights and weekends to spend with our dying veterans to ensure their final moments are spent with dignity.
