The Resource Center is delighted to have been named the recipient of the Observer newspaper’s 2020 “Visionary Community Service Award.”
The announcement was made in the Observer’s annual “Vision” section, which was published March 28. In selecting The Resource Center for the award, the Observer noted TRC’s 60-year mission of improving the lives of people with disabilities, plus the fact that the people TRC serves, as well as their support staff, enjoy volunteering their time and raising money for dozens of area non-profit organizations and charitable causes.
“We’re truly humbled to receive this award,” said Denise Jones, TRC’s Executive Director. “There are so many amazing organizations in Northern Chautauqua County that do great things to make our community such a wonderful place to live. We’re proud that the work we do to improve the lives of people with disabilities has the added bonus of making our community a better place as well. We’re grateful to Publisher John D’Agostino and his Observer staff for recognizing The Resource Center’s contributions.”
The Resource Center has enjoyed a long relationship with the Observer. Most notably, each year the paper publishes a special section about our Laurel Memorial Run & Walk, and volunteers sell copies if the paper to raise money to support people with disabilities.
