“I still have lots of energy. Why not use it?”

Three Highlands community members were recently featured in a Rochester Business Journal article. **

For these residents and so many others, it is a sense of purpose and connectedness that they love about living in Rochester and being a part of The Highlands at Pittsford community.

Resident Nancy Robbins founded Rochester’s Ronald McDonald House in 1990.  After spending many nights in hospital room chairs when one of her two daughters fell ill, Nancy had the idea for a place that “provides affordable lodging and emotional support for families who need to be near their hospitalized children.”  She continues to lend her time and energy toward the fundraising activities that take place each year for the organization.  Last year alone, she and her colleagues raised over a half million dollars.

In addition to her work with the Ronald McDonald House, Nancy serves on our community’s Purpose Committee.

“I’m working on a fashion show, bake sale and luncheon. Just because we’re old and retired certainly doesn’t mean we can’t be useful. Rochester is such a wonderful city for volunteering. I still have lots of energy. Why not use it”
