CAL to receive Comptroller Award for Baltimore County

The Catch A Lift Fund being 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.
