The United Way of the Bradford Area will be acknowledging four exceptional volunteers at the 2014 Red Feather Volunteer Recognition Luncheon on Thursday, May 1 in the Mukaiyama Room at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
The Red Feather award was implemented to honor outstanding individuals and/or businesses who have made an impact on the United Way of the Bradford Area, and the local community as a whole, through their day-to-day selfless attitudes and commitment to exemplifying the organization’s mission of enhancing the quality of life in the greater Bradford area.
This year’s Red Feather recipient is Lisa Minich, who is being honored for her contributions to the United Way of the Bradford Area throughout the years.
The Excellence in Representation award was created to recognize an outstanding agency representative who best exemplifies United Way’s mission within their organization, who participates in the annual campaign, and possesses a working knowledge of United Way and how it benefits the various programs and services in the community.
Three volunteers from the campaign’s Speakers’ Bureau will be honored with the Excellence in Representation award this year: Tom Miller, Ashley Peterson and Mike Walter, representing Futures Rehabilitation Center. Tom, Ashley and Mike spoke to over 300 employees at 25% of workplace presentations about the importance of giving to the United Way campaign, and how their lives are affected through working at Futures, a United Way funded agency.
Alongside their friends and family, community members will celebrate Lisa, Tom, Ashley and Mike for their continued support and volunteerism at the Red Feather Volunteer Recognition luncheon. The United Way of the Bradford Area staff and board of directors are pleased to recognize these deserving individuals for their commitment to the organization.
