One runs a nonprofit organization that provides used furniture to people in need. Another is an umpire for local youth baseball. The pursuits of these local residents vary greatly, but they’re bound by a common trait: selfless volunteering in an effort to help others.
Six such volunteers were recognized Friday during the 37th annual Los Altos-Los Altos Hills Joint Community Volunteer Service Awards luncheon at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Palo Alto. The event is hosted by an awards committee comprising members of both communities. The six volunteers honored this year are among more than 330 individuals and groups recognized since the awards began in 1983.
