Unassuming. Deeply committed. Tirelessly compassionate. Respectful. Exemplary.

These are some of the words used to describe a group of exceptional people who work with children, families and seniors on a daily basis at United Way-funded agencies and who were recognized for their passion, commitment and dedication at last week’s Bhayana Family Foundation Awards.

The awards are a partnership between United Way of the Lower Mainland and the Bhayana family to recognize extraordinary contributions made by frontline workers at United Way funded agencies. All awards are based on peer nominations. Congratulations to all of the winners!
