Fairfield-based Jewish Home for the Elderly recently honored a Weston woman for volunteerism.

Dorothy (Dood) Nevas Freedman was given the Arthur and Gladys Lunin Humanitarian Award by Bill Sims, the organization's chairman at the Women's Auxiliary 2011 Fall Gala.

The auxiliary's board of directors will allocate $100,000 raised at this event to support programs for the organization's residents, according to a release from the agency.
