On Tuesday, June 12th Bob Dascanio, his wife Jo, their daughter Maria and Wayne McAuliffe our Volunteer Program Manager were guests of the Kraft Foundation at Gillette Stadium where Bob was awarded a 2018 Myra Kraft Community MVP Award. Bob was selected from a list of over 400 submissions as one of the 26 New Englanders recognized by the Kraft Foundation for exemplary service to their communities. A luncheon and awards ceremony was held to honor and pay tribute to each individual and their contributions to service. We are really proud of the fact that Bob was selected and that we are able to hold up one of our own as a shining example in our community.
If you don’t already know Bob he is our longest serving Team Leader and has volunteered countless hours over the years leading groups in the field. In addition, he has helped to recruit individuals and volunteer groups that continue to give back here at our farms. Like all of our Team Leaders he is always willing to talk about the work that we do and we appreciate having him as an advocate for our work. On top of all of this he has been instrumental in helping his church with a feeding program and regularly can be found volunteering at both the Treasure Valley Scout Reservation and the Ecotarium. How he has found time for all of this work is beyond us, but we are really lucky to have him on our team.
Please join us in congratulating Bob on this momentous award and for all that he has done to advance our mission over the years. Great work Bob!
