Karen Lenois, 2021 John S. Martinez Community Service Awardee

Karen has spent her life in service to us and others, continually demonstrating a tenacious willingness to help those in need. Her commitment to our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness – pre-pandemic and during – is inspirational and exemplary. On her own and as a representative of St. Rita Church, St. Rita School and Divine Mercy Parish, she provides vital nutrition – both physical and emotional – to those we serve. She assists with in-kind drives, monthly meal service, and most recently, much-needed food contributions. For these and countless other selfless acts, including the care she takes to make the holidays so special for those we serve, it is our pleasure to award Karen with the 2021 John S. Martinez Community Service Award.

Thank you to our Sponsors!
