The 18th annual Faith in Action Volunteers’ Lives of Commitment Awards Breakfast was held Thursday morning at the Doubletree by Hilton in Binghamton.
Four volunteers who have each given years of dedicated service to the Greater Binghamton community were honored.
Reverend Stephen Heiss was the event’s key note speaker. He is a former pastor at Tabernacle United Methodist Church in Binghamton.
Rev. Heiss is currently involved in the LGBTQ community and has also joined the mission to battle the area’s heroin epidemic.
“Getting out and volunteering, just the little things is the easiest way to build up that mentality that you can make a difference. You can go out change your community for the better,” said another one of the four honoree’s and volunteer Chad Jablonka.
Faith in Action Volunteers is a program organized by the Broome County Council of Churches.
