BATAVIA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: 2018 Spirit of Batavia Award to the Batavia United Way
Batavia Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Jan. 3.
The Batavia Chamber is so thrilled to be presenting the 2018 Spirit of Batavia Award to the Batavia United Way at our 2019 Inspire Awards Event!
This is the third year the award is given to a group that has made significant contributions to the Batavia community.
"The contributions that the Batavia United Way have made to our community are immeasurable,” says Holly Deitchman. “However, this year has really stood out for their service through the implementation of 2-1-1. The amount of work that Melinda and the board put into making 2-1-1 happen in Kane County is staggering. We are so lucky to have them working for the betterment of our community."
Besides getting 2-1-1 off the ground, Batavia United Way set records for their Success By 6 program as well as the holiday Adopt A Family program. This year, 29 Kindergarten Enrichment Scholarships were funded. The Adopt A Family reached a new milestone with 120 families being adopted by 89 different sponsors. The group also celebrated 90 years of helping Batavians in 2018, dating back to the early days of Batavia Community Chest.
