Family Promise of Morris County Recognizes Volunteer with Community Impact Award

MORRIS COUNTY, N.J., -- Family Promise of Morris County announced today that it will be recognizing volunteers and community service at its annual Evening of Promise event on March 30 at the Meadow Wood Manor in Randolph, N.J. Special honors this year will go to Community Impact Award winner, Becky Pruitt, who serves as Congregation Coordinator for Ledgewood Baptist Church.

The Evening of Promise Event March 30, is sponsored by Greenberg Traurig, Florham Park.

The job requires an extraordinary volunteer commitment to plan all church activities related to hosting Family Promise families, including meals and overnight stays. Her tireless commitment to helping others serves as the centerpiece of this recognition.

"The criteria for being a recipient of this award is three-fold: the impact to Family Promise and those we serve, the ability to help us advance our mission beyond our agency to help people in our community transition to self-sufficiency and finally financial support of our programs and services," said Joann Bjornson, Executive Director of Family Promise of Morris County.

In addition to her work at the church, Becky and her husband Sam have provided countless discounts and free services to help FPMC clients get their donated and late model cars in safe operating condition to support transportation needs, through their family business, Sam's Automotive Repair. Sam's Automotive is a trusted institution in the Morristown area with the family setting the standard of service and integrity. They have provided services to keep the FPMC agency vehicles running in top condition as well.
