An Everyday Hero: May 2021

Sheila Lashinsky Honored

MONTICELLO, May 2021– The Kiwanis Club of Monticello proudly presented its Everyday Hero Award to Sheila Lashinsky in grateful recognition of her many years of service to Kiwanis and in appreciation for her giving back to the community through volunteer work in several other organizations that touched the lives of so many children and adults.

Among her many activities for Monticello Kiwanis, Ms. Lashinsky has served as advisor for its Builder’s Club comprising Monticello Middle School students doing community service, and has coordinated the Monticello Kiwanis “Sweet Dreams” project which provides personal grooming items and clothing for children moving into foster homes. In addition, she has been an active volunteer for the Mid-Hudson Alzheimer Association, Sullivan Renaissance, various Senior Citizen groups and her synagogue.

“Nobody does more for so many causes than Sheila,” said Monticello Kiwanis President Marvin Rappaport. “She is always thinking of ways to help others and to serve her community, even without being asked. Sheila is truly an ‘everyday hero.’”

Kiwanis is a service organization of local volunteers dedicated to assisting our children and improving our community through scholarships, distributing food baskets, and donating toys and books.
