FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Tuesday morning several people were recognized for going beyond the call of duty to support others.
As part of "National Philanthropy Day," Vietnam Veteran Lieutenant Colonel Howard Price and the DeMarchis family were recognized for their contributions to the community.
Lieutenant Colonel Price volunteers in four military-related organizations to help families of service members.
And the DeMarchis family has given back significantly to Turnstone, which helped their son with cerebral palsy. As well as donating to charities and families who need help.
Jenifer Renner with National Philanthropy Day says, “The family that we are recognizing today, they already told me 'we don't like being in the spotlight.' And I said, 'I know but we want to make a point of letting you know how much it means to us and to your community, and that's why we do this.' And to show the example to other people in the community of what you can do."
Renner says while sometimes the giving can only be a small gift of time or resources, when it comes from the heart, that's what matters.
