Community Service Award
The Blessings Resource Center has made a tremendous impact on our community since they first opened. They assessed the needs of the community, and formed a strong Board of Directors to execute the plan of helping others. They brought together a group of dedicated volunteers who have spent countless hours serving those who are less fortunate. The dedication and leadership of Chesterfield County First Steps Director, Karen Martini, partnered with the Blessings Resource Center Board of Directors and volunteers has significantly met the needs of many. For this, we are truly grateful.The 2016 Community Service Award went to the Blessings Resource Center.
Again, we thank everyone who was able to attend. We appreciate all the hard work, dedication, and continued support of each of our members and we certainly look forward to partnering with you again in 2016 for a fantastic year!!!
