Volunteer of the Year

Congratulations to Gary O'Brien, Catholic Charities Disabilities Services Volunteer of the Year.

Since he joined the Board of Catholic Charities Disabilities Services (CCDS) in 2010, Gary has been a steadfast and tireless participant in a broad range of Board and agency activities. He currently serves as Vice-president of the Board, Chair of the Board’s Quality Assurance and Improvement Committee, and as a member of the Board’s Nominating Committee. Gary also serves as the Board’s representative on the CCDS Incident Review Committee and enthusiastically attends events for CCDS staff and individuals and families served by CCDS, including celebrations like “Oktoberfest” and “Family Day.”

Gary has also served as a Trustee of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany and as President of the Catholic Charities AIDS Services Board.

Gary is someone who can always be counted on to be there where he is needed – with a smile, a joke and an open hand and heart, and CCDS is proud to honor Gary as our Volunteer of the Year.
