Over the years, so many have supported and continue to this day to support Polish Assistance. They deserve recognition and our special gratitude. The Board of Directors and the Grant Committee consider each case. Dr. Nina Thiessen for many years has been reviewing the applications; many of them have pages and pages of medical records attached. Eryka Volker is a well-known activist in the Polish community and has been involved in charity work for over 25 years. She has great insight into the needs of those who are less fortunate. Her work on behalf of the needy has been profiled in many newspaper articles as well as on local TV.
