BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The Catholic Charities of Broome County have been awarded more than $67,000, and it'll all be going right back to the community.

The money will go toward their retired and senior volunteer program. The program has more than 300 senior volunteers, all working to make a difference in the community.

"It really resounds through our whole community. There's a lot of good that's multiplied, it's a domino effect. As they volunteer in all the different places in our community, food pantries and places like that, they're actually touching many people in our community and we're lucky to have them," said Catholic Charities of Broome County Executive Director Lori Accardi.

If you are interested in volunteering with the program, you can reach Catholic Charities of Broome County at 607-729-9166, or you can visit their website.
