We are pleased to announce that Encore Community Services will host its Annual Heart to Heart Awards Benefit on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at Mutual of America, 320 Park Avenue, New York City. This year, Encore will be honoring Donnelly Mechanical, represented by Tom Krol, Vice President of Business Development.
Encore Senior Center provides food and assistance to seniors with limited mobility in our communities, preparing and delivering over 800 meals each day for New York City’s less fortunate and homebound seniors. Additionally, they serve over 200 meals daily to seniors at their West 49th Street dining room.
Tom Krol spearheaded a project to modify the Encore Senior Center kitchen by installing a new commercial convection oven which required extending the exhaust hood and adding a fire protection system. This renovation and new oven cut the cooking time in half for the staff at Encore!
In conjunction with the Benefit, Encore will publish a Commemorative Journal in which friends, supporters and businesses may inscribe a personal message, extend congratulations to Tom Krol, or place a business advertisement. Anyone interested in participating in this effort should call Ellen Johnson, firstname.lastname@example.org , 718-925-3348 or Gina Curran, email@example.com , 646-726-4299, ext. 106.
All proceeds from this journal help support Encore’s programs and services to the elderly and homeless. These services include: congregate meals, health and social services, a shop and escort program, friendly visiting, recreational and educational activities and home-delivered meals to frail and homebound seniors, provided seven days a week. Encore also operates the Encore 49 Residence, a supportive housing facility for formerly homeless seniors with mental illness, and the Encore West Residence, housing for very low-income seniors, located at 755 Tenth Avenue, between 51st and 52nd Streets.
Only with your support can Encore continue its caring presence as “Broadway’s Longest Running Act of Loving Care” since 1977.
