Lynnewood United Methodist Church has been awarded the Juanita Haugen Community of Character Award for 2014, along with 3 other individual recipients. This award goes to 4 Pleasanton persons or groups a year for demonstrating selected character values: Responsibility, Compassion, Self-Discipline, Honesty, Respect and Integrity.
The award is named in honor of Juanita Haugen, who was a Pleasanton Unified School District Board Member, co-founder of the Pleasanton Community of Character program, and community volunteer. This award recognizes volunteers who exhibit high ethical standards of behavior in serving their community, beyond their work responsibilities.
Lynnewood’s award recognizes the church’s Outreach Committee and congregational involvement in many local volunteer service projects, including Bundles of Joy, Tri-Valley Haven, Alameda County Community Food Bank, and Open Heart Kitchen.
