The 2019 Charlotte A. Leavitt Award Winner, Connie Cunningham with David Hughes, ICCI President and Charlotte Leavitt

The Charlotte A. Leavitt Award in Recognition for Outstanding Volunteer Service was awarded to Connie Cunningham of Sandwich at the recent Interlakes Community Caregivers 2019 Annual Meeting & Volunteer Recognition.

“Connie works tirelessly to fulfill the Community Caregivers’ mission.  She speaks up and shows up, responds and participates whenever asked and  where-ever needed,” stated David Hughes, President. Hughes and Charlotte Leavitt, a co-founder of the organization after whom the recognition was named, presented the award.  “Volunteering for Community Caregivers makes me feel useful to those in need as they age and, whether driving or setting up rides, I always feel the gratitude of our Neighbors,” Connie stated.

Connie began volunteering with the Sandwich Caregivers prior to its merger with the Community Caregivers of Center Harbor, Meredith and Moultonborough in 2012, resulting in the more-inclusive name change to Interlakes Community Caregivers, Inc.  Since that time, Connie has continued her commitment, dedication and passion for the mission serving as a Volunteer Driver, Volunteer Coordinator, Board member and Newsletter graphics and production coordinator.

The Charlotte A. Leavitt Award was established in 2014 to recognize outstanding volunteer service with commitment, dedication and passion to the Interlakes Community Caregiver mission as exemplified by this co-founder of the organization.  Other factors taken into consideration are  length of service, adherence to service guidelines including administrative requirements, number and types of service donated, hours donated, and miles driven.
