United Way celebrated the individuals and partner organizations who volunteer their time, energy and resources to make a difference in the lives of others here in York County. The luncheon was held at Southern Charm Events in Rock Hill. More than 125 awards were presented Monday afternoon.
Awards presented ranged from company honors such as Campaign Supporters and Circle of Honor. Individual awards included Outstanding Campaign Coordinator of the Year, the most prestigious award, Spirit of York County, and several others. The Spirit of York County is given to an individual who lends their time, talent and voice to make a difference in our community. It is the United Way of York County’s highest honor.
Congratulations to our Spirit of York County recipient, Sheriff Kevin Tolson! “His heart of gold and service to others shines through in everything that he does,” said United Way of York County President Rebecca Melton. “Sheriff Tolson gives unselfishly of his time. He has been involved with United Way for many years. He has served in many challenging roles; Campaign Chairman, Palmetto Leadership Society Chairman, Grants volunteer, and volunteering for our Holiday Partners program alongside his staff.”
United Way of York County is continually thankful for the support and generosity that exists in our community.
