CU System
N.Y. young pros volunteer at Ronald McDonald House
ALBANY, N.Y. (6/9/14)--Eight young professionals from New York credit unions volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House in Buffalo last week.

The volunteers represented four credit unions from the greater Buffalo area, including $72 million-asset Great Erie FCU, Orchard Park; $727 million-asset The Summit FCU, Rochester; $40 million-asset Western New York FCU, West Seneca; and $90 million-asset Buffalo (N.Y.) Metropolitan FCU.

Three of the volunteers--Cara Carlevatti, Katie Sugorovskiy and Angelina Incorvaia--are members of the Credit Union Association of New York's Young Professionals Commission.

Together, the volunteers participated in the Cook for Kids program, which included going grocery shopping, cooking dinner and cleaning for 20 temporary residents currently staying at the house. The families have children receiving medical treatment in Buffalo-area hospitals.

"After spending most of the day at the hospital, a simple home cooked meal can really go a long way," said Sugorovskiy ( The Point June 6). "I am grateful for the opportunity through the commission to provide a helping hand to those who are going through a difficult time."
