Community Involvement — Urban League
“…it has been an excellent
Urban League Director Pat Handy
After the Lake County Urban League received a donated
building badly in need of remodeling, JJH volunteered to take charge
of building renovations. In addition to supplying labor and contributing
financially, JJH solicited the needed materials, labor and money to
compete the renovations.
JJH President David Henderson recruited JJH personnel to find subcontractors
and suppliers willing to lend a hand. Their efforts generated valuable
contributions of materials and labor from many JJH vendors as well as
a number of companies who offered financial assistance.
In recognition for JJH’s help, the Lake County Urban League presented
JJH with the President’s Award and Staff Appreciation Award. Mr.
Handy explained that the President’s Award is given to individuals
and organizations whose contributions “go above and beyond the
call of duty,” and the Staff Appreciation Award honors individuals
recognized by the Urban League staff.
