Sr. Alice Conrad, along with seventy-four senior citizens from Westchester County, was honored at the County’s Senior Hall of Fame event Friday, December 6 at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, N.Y. Sr. Alice was one of two seniors who received “top honors” at the ceremony.
To be nominated, a person must be at least 60 years old and live in Westchester; made significant contributions to improve life in the county; be an outstanding leader or advocate; and have professional achievements that reflect innovative solutions to fulfill unmet community needs.
Sr. Alice was recognized for her outstanding contributions to Westchester County in several capacities, but most notably for her work with Shepherd’s Flock– a ministry whose mission is to provide basic necessities of food, clothing and/or furniture for the poor, especially the working poor, who are not eligible for any government assistance.
When asked about the impact she has had in Westchester, Sr. Alice explains, “We have been blessed to help the very, very poor, the working poor, homeless, sick, victims of domestic violence and the hungry. We could not have accomplished this without the help of countless individuals, businesses, community organizations, churches, nonprofit and service organizations, and especially the Sisters of the Divine Compassion who have partnered with us to serve the poor.”
