The Amherst H. Wilder Foundation has named the recipients of the 2014 Sandy Kiernat Community Service Award: Ellen Biales and the Wilder Caregiver Advisory Group. This award recognizes and celebrates outstanding volunteers who exemplify the spirit of Sandy Kiernat, a Wilder Board Member and longtime advocate of community service.
Ellen Biales has volunteered as a coach in the Neighborhood Leadership Program for seven years, providing mentorship and guidance to emerging community leaders. The Wilder Caregiver Advisory Group has helped guide Wilder's caregiving initiatives and played a major role in passing legislation allowing employees to take time off to caregive for family members.
