Honoring Servant Leaders

Honoring Servant Leaders

The Helping Hands Award to individuals, couples and families who have demonstrated civic and charitable stewardship to improve the quality of living in the communities we serve. The award recognizes the recipients for exhibiting exceptional generosity, outstanding community achievements, direct financial support, or by motivating others to give.

Each of the recipients have epitomized these qualities and are formally presented with the award at our annual Helping Hands Award Dinner in May. Funds raised in support of the dinner help us keep our promise that no one in our nine-county service area eligible for our services will be turned away due to an inability to pay.

The honoree for 2019 is Catherine Hiler.
