United Way of Susquehanna County (UWSC) Recognizes Community Volunteers

In honor of National Volunteer week, on Wednesday, April 20, 2016, UWSC recognized and offered thanks to the many volunteers that contribute time, talent and financial support to UWSC and the partner agencies it funds. The event was hosted at the Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center (SCCTC) with the talented Food Management students working under the direction of Mr. David Dunster and Ms. Jill Wiedmaier preparing a delightful lunch.

Members of the UWSC Advisory Committee and Allocation Committee were honored for their service in guiding the organization in its mission and making the important decisions of where generous donor dollars should be invested. Community volunteers include: Joel Levy, Kim Smith, Tammy Bonnice, Tom Chamberlain, Dr. Alice Davis, Terri Allen, David Passetti, Bob Welch, Peggy Maynard, Rich Mackey, Deserae Davis, Jamie Orlandini, Sara Armetta, Amanda Arnold, and Michelle Graziano.

UWSC also recognized Kenneth Brittingham, a student at SCCTC, for his contributions as a volunteer firefighter in Montrose. He has dedicated hundreds of hours courageously serving the community and serves as the assistant secretary. Kenneth also recently placed 1st in the Skills USA competition in the Prepared Speech division. He will go on to compete in the national event in June in Louisville, Kentucky. On hand was his mom, Karen, who acknowledged what a wonderful young man Kenneth is. Kenneth is planning on attending nursing school in West Virginia in the fall.

UWSC Campaign chair, Kim Smith and Susquehanna Market Manager with NBT Bank had this to say, “Thank you to the many volunteers and community leaders for being part of the change in our community. Your service allows us to inspire hope for a better tomorrow.”

Susquehanna County Commissioner Chairman, Alan Hall, was on hand to offer his thanks to the community volunteers for the work they do in an effort to improve quality of life for Susquehanna County residents. “These volunteers embody the true essence of giving. Thank you to the many community volunteers who step up to serve our friends, family, neighbors and co-workers in their time of need.”

Additionally, thanks were extended to our volunteer partners at United Way of Lackawanna County for working with UWSC and eligible Susquehanna County residents to provide free income tax assistance to income eligible residents.
