MOW’s Lauren Gousy Honored with Volunteer Administrator Award

Meals on Wheels for WNY’s Volunteer Relations Associate Lauren Gousy has been honored with the Volunteer Administrators of WNY’s (VAWNY’s) prestigious Gretchen E. Stringer Award for Volunteer Administrator of the Year.

This award is given to one professional each year who exhibits dedication to the community and the profession.  Lauren has been with Meals on Wheels since 2014 and has made significant strides in volunteer recruitment efforts during that time – including doubling the number of groups that have “Adopted-A-Route.”  She also has come up with creative ways to recognize volunteers, such as last year’s picnic – “Our hats off to you, volunteers” – which included a very popular hat decorating contest.
