"Mimi is a superhuman youth worker," said Youth Bureau Director Allen Green.

For all of her efforts, the Women's Fund of the Community Foundation of Tompkins County is honoring Melegrito at its annual luncheon Tuesday at Ithaca College.
Melegrito will receive the Laura Holmberg Award for her volunteer work and service to the Ithaca community, according to Karen Macier, chairwoman of the Women's Fund Advisory Committee.
...
Melegrito has been a member of the Kiwanis Club of Ithaca-Cayuga since 1988 -- shortly after women were permitted to join -- and became the club's first woman president in 1994, a distinction she remains proud of. She has been instrumental in starting outreach programs for senior citizens and Kiwanis-sponsored youth programs at Cornell and Ithaca College. In 2005, she became a Kiwanis lieutenant governor for New York and received the prestigious Hixson Fellowship Award. She was also instrumental in starting a multicultural after-school program. "I'm an ordinary citizen who likes to make a difference," she said.
On lunch breaks, Melegrito plays the piano and sings for senior citizens at area nursing homes. Having supervised volunteers for many years, her favorite part of the job is getting them excited about becoming involved in the community.
"Whether it's volunteering for Loaves and Fishes, visiting nursing homes, or the SPCA, many tell me that volunteering three hours a week doesn't feel like a chore," she said.
