Each year VOICES recognizes individuals who have made a significant contribution to those impacted by 9/11 with a Building Bridges Award. This year three dedicated VOICES volunteers, Duane Orloske, Kate O'Brien and Alessandra Benedetti, who lost loved ones on 9/11, were presented with the 2010 Building Bridges Awards.
For several years they have traveled long distances to volunteer in a number of capacities at our office in New Canaan, CT. Their unique perspectives as family members and their special skills have helped guide the organization. Over the years they have become an extension of our staff and we are grateful for their dedication. Please join us in thanking Duane, Kate and Alessandra for their important contributions. Their commitment of time and talents is an inspiration to us all.
