South Shore Road to Recovery volunteers thanked for their dedicated service

South  Shore (MA) Road to Recovery Volunteers 2013

The Society recently hosted a luncheon to thank and recognize our South Shore area Road to Recovery volunteers. More than 30 volunteers attended the special event at the Cohasset Lightkeeper’s House. 

From January – April 2013, these volunteers have assisted 31 patients with 264 rides to and from treatment. In 2012, the dedicated group served 59 patients with 843 rides. 

Road to Recovery began on the South Shore in Hingham, MA, as the “Hingham Hotline” in 1973, covering eight local towns.  Hingham resident and cancer survivor Lillian Valorz founded the hotline, which our South Shore Road to Recovery volunteers still support today.  Lillian passed away in June 2001 at the age of 90. 

The luncheon was made possible through many generous donors, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Hingham; Fresh Market, Hingham; Fruit Center Marketplace, Hingham; Hannaford, Norwell; ItzaParty, Weymouth; Cohasset LightKeeper’s House; The Mill Wharf Restaurant, Scituate; Neet Nails, Norwell; Patriot Cinemas, Hingham; Redeye Roasters, Hingham; Shaw’s, Cohasset; Stars, Hingham; Stop & Shop in Cohasset, Hingham, and Quincy; Tedeschi, New England; and Trader Joe’s in Hanover.
