Behind-the-Scenes Angel

Tracey Roderick (above left) began her journey with Immaculate Conception Shelter & Housing Corp. as a food group member. Tracey and her food group members would volunteer to prepare and serve meals to the Shelter clients. After some time, she felt an urge to help in other ways. Tracey contacted Teresa Wierbicki, Immaculate’s Development Director, and learned more about the agency, its mission and goals.

Ever since that conversation, Tracey has been very hands on with Immaculate and has raised awareness and funds for the agency in many different ways. As a direct result of her efforts, St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Tariffville has held collections during mass, gathering donations such as food, household items and toiletries for Immaculate’s clients. Over the past year, Tracey has donated much more than tangible items. A posting on Immaculate’s Facebook page stated that we were in need of volunteers to help organize the many generous donations received. Tracey saw the post and did not hesitate to come in and help. She spent two days organizing clothing at the Shelter in order to prepare for the large number of clients that will be served in the winter months.
