Director of Community Development Lori Szewcyzk accepts a United Way plaque on behalf of the town of Evans.
EVANS — On May 1, the town of Evans employees were awarded a plaque by the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County in recognition of their efforts during the 2013 Annual Campaign. United Way Account Executive David Wilson was on hand to present the plaque. Town Supervisor Keith Dash and Director of Community Development Lori Szewczyk accepted the award, on behalf of the town employees.
Due to the efforts of employees, the town’s pledges for the 2013 campaign increased 216 percent from the previous year.
The town’s campaign coordinators stepped up their efforts to encourage employee giving for the 2013 drive, due to the great need in the Evans community. During the campaign, Dash sponsored a free lunch for those employees that submitted their pledge cards. Each employee that pledged a contribution was also entered into a drawing for Bills memorabilia – a cap autographed by Buffalo Bill C.J. Spiller and Bills sweatshirts.
“The town of Evans employees are very supportive of the community they serve,” said Dash. “Many of our employees directed their financial contributions to services and programs that benefit the residents of the town of Evans.”
