At Leading Age North Carolina's 56th Spring Conference and Trade Show, Springmoor Chaplain Phyllis Mayo was on hand to accept the prestigious 2012 Community Services Award for the community's outstanding work raising over $13,000 for Raleigh charity Stop Hunger Now. These donations enabled Springmoor residents and staff to package an incredible 50,442 nutritious meals, in one day, for the world's most impoverished children.
Additionally, dedicated volunteer Shirley Peck, received the 2012 LeadingAge North Carolina Award that honors excellence in service to the elderly.
What started 27 years ago with a few hours a week playing piano at meals, Peck has turned into a musical initiative including nearly 300 Springmoor residents, 1250 rehearsals, and 326 performances that have changed and enhanced the lives of hundreds of residents and thousands of audience members.
Congratulations to Phyllis, Shirley, and the Springmoor Community!
