LEBANON COUNTY, PA: United Way of Lebanon County is accepting nominations through September 1 for their second annual Leonard Washington Community Service Award. The award was created to recognize an individual who stands out by the nature of their commitment and the integrity of their character; is committed to making a difference in the community; recognizes service as the foundation of the organization and rewards come from giving; demonstrates unwavering determination and hard work; has provided significant unheralded contributions to our local community.
“It is so important we recognize individuals who stand out in our community. United Way of Lebanon County was incredibly fortunate to have Leonard’s support both as a board member and donor for many years,” says Andrew Demler, Board President. “To recognize his life well lived, his steadfast dedication to our community and his unparalleled dedication to our organization, United Way will be awarding the Leonard Washington Community Service Award annually to a deserving member of the Lebanon County community.” In addition, a $1000 donation will be made to the recipient’s nonprofit of choice. Last year’s inaugural award was presented to Cornell Wilson, co-founder of Making a Difference of Lebanon, PA.
