The Pilot Club has received a $200 award from Pilot International to help recognize unpaid caregivers during International Care and Kindness Week, November 9, 2015. For several years, Pilot International and local clubs around the world have participated in the Pick Me Ups Initiative to promote awareness of the needs and service of unpaid caregivers—those adults and children who care for the elderly, adults with chronic diseases, children and adults with special needs, or neighbors who need a helping hand.
The Pilot Club of Alpine will present Pick Me Ups to 25 unpaid caregivers in Brewster County. If you know of an unpaid caregiver who deserves recognition for selfless dedication to caring for someone, please contact Kathy Bork, Pilot Club of Alpine, [email protected], 432-386-3551, for information about how to nominate that person for a Pick Me Up. Deadline for nominations is October 19, 2015.
The Pilot Club of Alpine is a service organization of women and men founded in 1946. It meets the second Wednesday at noon at the Alpine Public Library. Pilot International’s mission is to transform communities by developing youth, providing service and education, and uplifting families.
