The 2014 awards were presented to Stacey Schmidt representing Hilltop Neighborhood House for Outstanding Nonprofit Agency; Don Quijote Restaurant’s Carlos Rivero and Elena Jambrina for Outstanding Volunteers; Kristopher Krouse for Outstanding Nonprofit Staff Member; and Dr. Larry McAfee for Outstanding Volunteer.

The Porter County Community Foundation celebrated its past year’s accomplishments and thanked the individuals and community partners who help make it all possible at its recent annual meeting.

The remarkable work of nonprofit organizations was also recognized with the presentation of the 2014 Outstanding Achievement Awards.

Each year, the foundation presents four outstanding achievement awards to recognize the volunteers, nonprofit organizations and staff for their roles in building a stronger Porter County.

“We are inspired each and every day by our nonprofit partners,” said Barb Young, foundation president. “We see what a difference they are making in the lives of the people they serve.”

The 2014 awards were presented to following recipients: Kristopher Krouse, Shirley Heinze Land Trust executive director, for Outstanding Nonprofit Staff Member; Hilltop Neighborhood House for Outstanding Nonprofit Agency; Dr. Larry McAfee, TalTree Arboretum and Gardens board member, for Outstanding Volunteer; and Don Quijote Restaurant’s Carlos Rivero and Elena Jambrina, Housing Opportunities supporters, for Outstanding Volunteers.

Along with the award, each recipient gets to select a nonprofit to receive a $1,000 grant to the organization’s endowment fund.

The Porter County Community Foundation inspires giving and engages the community to improve lives in Porter County now and forever.  For more information, call 219-465-0294 or visit www.portercountyfoundation.org.
