Karen Pirozzi and her husband David Guistina of Voorheesville, NY  have hosted 17-year-old Sierra from the Bronx since 2005. Karen and Sierra enjoy doing the same things every summer to continue their traditions. “It seems like the simple things are the activities that Sierra remembers the most. She likes to go to the drive-in and visit Saratoga to go on the carousel. Now she wants to visit these same favorite places every time she is here,” Karen says. “Our family has gained as much from the Friendly Towns Program as Sierra. It is a really good contribution that we can make to someone’s life. When she tells us that she would not have these experiences without us, it makes us feel great that we can share them with her.”
