FAMILYLINKS HONORS THREE LOCAL BUSINESSWOMEN FOR THEIR VOLUNTEERISM

Pittsburgh, PA (October 15)– Familylinks announced today that Carol Borrelli, Cindy Magri and Terri Wyda will receive the 2019 Priddy Award, an annual award which recognizes outstanding volunteers for their efforts to make a difference in the lives of those served by Familylinks, Inc. These awards will be presented to the honorees during a “Volunteer of the Year” Reception held at the Familylinks East Liberty location on Wednesday, October 16th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Ms. Borrelli is a Senior Project Manager at Federated Investors since 1980. Her colleague at Federated, Ms. Magri, is a Senior Administrative Assistant in the International Management Division. Ms. Wyda is currently the Senior Vice President of Midland Loan Services, a PNC Real Estate Business.

The award is named after its inaugural volunteer in May of 2007, Kelli Priddy. By donating their time and resources throughout the year to host birthday parties for at-risk and homeless youth currently living in our Downtown Outreach Center and Shelter (DOCS), these three women have been a truly committed to supporting the Familylinks mission. Their efforts have demonstrated a level of caring and concern for each youth, making a huge difference in the lives of our clients.

“It is very notable that these donations by Carol, Cindy and Terri are provided in the true spirit of giving; asking nothing in return.  The relationship with DOCS has been a positive one over the years, and continues to this day.  I am happy to have this relationship, as are our youth,” said Lenny Prewitt, Program Manager.
