Volunteer Spotlight

Grassi is my name and weeds are my game” – Robert Grassi

Robert Grassi moved to Pittsboro in 2010 and started volunteering with COA in 2016. After a life time of landscaping, including 16 years working for David Rockefeller of “the Rockefellers” in NY, Robert decide to lend a hand with the landscape at our Eastern Chatham Senior Center. When asked why he was volunteering he said, “I wanted to work with my hands and to help.” Robert also volunteers with our volunteers who help harvest crops at the Central Caroline Community College. When you pull up to our ECSC and notice the neatly trimmed hedges, the clean yard and the weeds are non-existent, you can say “Thank you Robert.”
