102 year-old woman still finds time to volunteer

Local News

(WSYR-TV) — Imagine being 102 years old and still having a job.

Well that’s what Earnestine Williams does. She’s a senior companion for the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities.

Williams comes in four days a week, she sits with her friends, sings to them, and chats. She’s been doing that for more than 30 years.

“It means a lot to me. Because you know what, a lot of them don’t have nobody to come visit them and see them. And we are in the place of them,” she said.

She said she enjoys it because it gets her out of the house and enjoys her time there.
