Big Apple Greeter
February 24, 2011
I am lucky to run the two all news radio stations in New York City. They are an integral part of the fabric of the Big Apple. AND SO IS BIG APPLE GREETER. A news station spends much of its time delivering news that is usually not too happy. But one of the stories we have been able to report on is this great volunteer organization that is devoted to showing people who visit our city just how GRAND it is. There can't be a better way to make the image of NYC glitter than the personal touch that Big Apple Greeters have with visitors. I know that visitors leave our city with a warm glow and memories they will always cherish because of the caring, personable and attentive sharing provided by the Big Apple volunteers. And, now being on the Board of Directors, I see first hand the caring, passion and enthusiasm the volunteers have. It is an honor to know that New Yorkers care so much about showing off their city and spend hours of their own time making wonderful experiences for those who visit New York.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
hearing visitors who have taken walks with Big Apple Greeters speak glowingly and fondly of their experiences.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
want to find more permanent sources of funding for operations.
Board Member & I work with the Board of Directors in providing direction and guidance.
