2 southwestern Pa. businesses win volunteer award

United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania has honored Indiana County-based S&T Bank and Achieva, a Southwestern Pennsylvania organization, with its United in Service Volunteer award.

The award is given to an individual or group who shows “excellence in volunteerism within its local community,” according to a news release.

“S&T Bank is committed to making a difference throughout our communities in partnership with organizations like the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania,” said Todd D. Brice, chief executive officer of S&T Bank. “We are honored to have been recognized with this award and I’d like thank our outstanding employees for their continued commitment to volunteerism.”

Over the past two years, officials from S&T Bank have worked with Achieva — which has locations in Westmoreland, Allegheny and Beaver counties and provides support for people with disabilities and their families. S&T Bank and Achieva worked together to refurbish a local Boy Scout camp and church camp during the annual Day of Caring, a day presented by United Way to encourage volunteering in the local community.

S&T Bank also added five new team members to the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania’s Women Leadership Council last year: Pam Price, Mary Anne Dornetto, Trudie Kozar, Robin Gray and Susie Nicholson. The council is aimed mobilizing the “power of women helping women,” the website reads.

Officials were honored Tuesday morning at the Fred Rogers Conference Center at Saint Vincent.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
