Angel Dandrea has been working for Blair Senior Services, Inc. for approximately 12 years. She initially began with the Agency as a college intern during the summer of 2002 in the Care Management Department. Angel realized that Blair Senior Services was a place that she wanted to work someday. Upon graduation, she applied for a job opening and was hired. She currently supervises and works directly with the Senior Centers, Congregate Meal Program, and Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion Programs.
When asked what she liked best about working for Blair Senior Services, Angel stated, “What I like best is seeing the positive impact that our programs and services have on the older adults that we serve in Blair County. Whether it’s through volunteerism, participating in programming at the Senior Centers, receiving a hot meal or transportation, there is something positive that everyone can be a part of. I’m truly blessed to be a part of such an amazing team at Blair Senior Services.”
Angel said she would definitely encourage people to volunteer stating, “Blair Senior Services has a number of volunteer opportunities available. Our Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion Programs are currently in need of volunteers, specifically Foster Grandparents. The Foster Grandparents volunteer 15-40 hours per week in elementary schools, Head Start programs and daycares throughout Blair County. If you know of anyone who might be interested, let us know. We would be happy to discuss the opportunity with them!”
