CAL receives Baltimore County Award

CAL receives Baltimore County Award

The Catch A Lift Fund was named the 2017 William Donald Schaefer Award recipient for Baltimore County!  Comptroller Peter Franchot was moved when he heard about the services our organization provides to enable our nation’s veterans to recover and rehabilitate both physically and mentally.

The William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award was created to honor the legacy of the public service exemplified by former Governor, Comptroller, and Baltimore City Mayor William Donald Schaefer. One winner is selected from each of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions and award recipients are selected based on their demonstration of improving the community and creating programs that improve the lives of Marylanders.

“The Comptroller felt that the work your organization does to both honor your brother’s legacy and help others made Catch A Lift Fund the perfect award recipient!” -Emily Hollis Gontrm, Director of Intergovernmental Affairs.

We received the award in a short ceremony on Friday, December 8th at 11:00 am at 410 Crossfit located at 3500 Parkdale Ave, Baltimore, MD 21211.
