Kennedy received this prestigious award for her outstanding tireless efforts that have lead to the implementation of successful, unique and groundbreaking community outreach programs.The NCBW-LAC is not the first to recognize good deeds done by Kennedy; she has also received the NAACP Ruby McKnight award and NAACP Community Volunteer award among others. Kennedy is founder, CEO, and president of a strategic political consulting firm, L.L. Kennedy & Associates, specializing in providing consulting for political candidates, business, nonprofits, and individuals. Kennedy currently serves on the boards of Pasadena Arts Council, Community Health Alliance of Pasadena, First AME Church Trustee Board, and the Pasadena Playhouse Diversity Board.Kennedy brought her son Jonathon Kennedy to the stage to wish him a happy 21st birthday and symbolically share the honor with him as well as the rest of her family and 50 plus friends supporting her that day who “collectively achieved” the award with her.“Lena’s the type of person that doesn’t seek accolade or acclaim, she’s just someone who is really in the trenches helping the community whether its helping the young community organizer by the name of Barrack Obama become a President of the United States or helping our local congress woman or helping children obtain scholarships to go to college that’s what she does and she does it without asking for anything in return so she really is a servant leader,” Lena’s brother Councilmember John Kennedy said.Although he said she is normally in the background, she is a powerful force in the community for good.“She makes sure that no plans get left behind. That’s a personal goal of mine, is that no one’s left behind and I always admire Lena for that because she reaches out and encourage anyone to meet their goals in life. She’s a very, very, very exceptionally good at that,” Los Angeles Chapter chair Judy Matthews said.“I’m humbled and I’m grateful. There’s so many people that do incredible work and I’m just one of many that are trying to make the difference in our communities and our society and our country. So I feel blessed and honored that the organization found me worthy enough to receive this honor,” Kennedy said.The congress also honored Dr. Carla Thomas who returned to her roots to keep the Inglewood community smiling with her top quality dentistry practices. She also reaches into the community to teach them about basic hygiene and the importance of caring for teeth among many more efforts.“The National Congress of Black Women is well known for their contributions in the community and communities around the country. So to be recognized by them, by such a phenomenal organization, it’s just absolutely wonderful for me; especially for something that I do because I love to do. Sometimes when you’re recognized with something you do day in and day out, it makes it even better,” Thomas said.The NCBW is recognized nationally for serving the needs of communities across the nation, including recognition by President Barrack Obama who sent a letter of praise with keynote speaker Reverend Brenda Girton-Mitchell for the NCBW as well as the honorees. He was proud of the efforts to work together to build communities and reminded the National Congress that education is the great equalizer.“Los Angeles is one of our number one chapters in the nation. They truly represent what we call women making difference,” Dr. E Faye Williams said who is the national chair of Congress of Black Women for the 100 chapters nationwide.“We thank you Lord for the sweet, sweet spirit in this room.” This statement said in the prayer of Rev. Dr. who came from Washington D.C. to give the keynote speech encapsulated the Luncheon.Everyone in the room cared about making a difference to impact their community. The audience cheered wildly for a good word said or for the people brought to the stage who embodied the theme of “Reaching Out Embracing our Communities.”Other guests of honor who took part in the Luncheon included MC Juanita Palacios Sims, Recording Artist Abraham McDonald, Comedian Kathy Westfield, and Justine Mutale of Zambia who recently won African Woman of the Year. She brought greetings from the motherland to empower the black women of the U.S.For the first time in their four year history, the National Congress of Black Women gave away scholarships at the gala to nine men and women who have chosen to further their education while overcoming hardship, one of whom will be attending Harvard in the fall.“We are truly an organization of service. It doesn’t matter what your status is in life, the type of family that you come from; it doesn’t matter. When a person becomes a member of this organization, they come to serve. To come to lift up that person that cannot step up by themselves,” Chair of the Los Angles Chapter Judy Matthews said.The NCBW-LAC commenced in 2009 to provide services to impact African American women and their families in the Los Angles areas to live successful lives, empower fellow women leaders and bring education even to the dark corners.“And we’re leaving our print, footprints and our handprints making small incremental contributions… no matter how small. They’re incremental but collectively they make a big difference, and I just believe in the power of numbers; pulling people together. We all make a little difference, but when we come together it has a greater impact,” Lena Kennedy said.For more information about the NCBW call (800) 895-3180, email [email protected], or visit www.ncbwinclac.org Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday last_img read more

Photo by Stephen McCarthy/Sportsfile *** NO REPRODUCTION FEE ***THE GAA, in partnership with Kellogg, has today launched the 2021 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps, offering children a healthy, fun and safe summer outdoor activity.Starting on 28th June and running up to 27th August, the 2021 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps will run in line with government guidelines and subject to the advice of the relevant authorities. The successful health and safety measures from last year will be implemented again and built on for the 2021 camps.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Despite challenges encountered last year, the 2020 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps proved a great success and provided a welcome diversion for over 70,000 children across the country from the Covid-19 restrictions.It also marked an important milestone by welcoming the 1 millionth participant to the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps. The number of camps and capacity at this year’s camps will increase as we get closer to the summer months with some already on sale, but parents are reminded to book early to avoid disappointment as demand is expected to be higher than ever.Kellogg ambassador and Mayo Football Star, Cillian O’Connor was on hand to launch the 2021 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps and will front the ‘Cúl Start’ campaign alongside Kilkenny Camogie Star, Grace Walsh with a range of social video content to be delivered across Kellogg’s social channels throughout the Summer. B*Witched star, Sinead O’Carroll was also in attendance and is looking forward to sending her kids, Samarah and Blane to this year’s camps.Kellogg has also today launched the nationwide on-pack promotion for all GAA clubs across the country to be in with a chance to win prizes worth a total of €40,000. With fundraising activities severely disrupted over the past year, this on-pack competition provides GAA members with an incredible opportunity to raise vital funds for their team.In order to nominate your GAA club, all that is required is to purchase a promotional box of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies or Bran Flakes. Using a unique on pack code, log on to kelloggsculcamps.gaa.ie/competition and nominate your club of choice.Sarah Ferguson, Kellogg Ireland General Manager said “Kellogg is very proud to be involved in a partnership which involves children the length and breadth of the country, each of whom will get the chance to meet up with their friends and enjoy themselves in a healthy and safe outdoor environment.“This is the tenth year of our sponsorship and we are thrilled to watch the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps to continue to go from strength to strength and it was particularly pleasing to see how well it worked last year during a difficult year.“Last year, we reached the significant milestone of welcoming the 1 millionth child through the GAA Cúl Camps since Kellogg partnered with the GAA. We are looking forward to welcoming more children this year and for the camps to continue to play such a key role in the summer of budding sports stars.” she said.GAA Cúl Camps co-ordinator Charlie Harrison added “It’s time to make Summer plans! Keeping in line with Government guidelines we are thankfully in a position to deliver the camps during the months of July and August 2021 to children living in all 32 counties.“Naturally, after the year we’ve all had to endure, the idea of finally getting out of the house, being active and seeing other children sounds hugely appealing. We are mindful of the reality that Covid 19 will still be with us however, and we will be very much guided by the government and relevant authorities to ensure all reasonable safety measures and protocols are adhered to in the rollout of our camps.GAA President Larry McCarthy said “The success of our Kellogg’s Cúl Camps in 2020 was one of the GAA highlights in what was a difficult year for everyone. The focus and outlet that it gave to 70,000 of our young players in a safe environment provided a huge boost to them and their families and I am confident the camps can have a similarly positive impact this summer.“The reach and success of the camps is not limited to Ireland only; their growing popularity across our international network is a great source of pride and seeing the distinctive playing gear, not just across the island but in pockets around the globe, is fantastic.“A special word of thanks to Kellogg for a decade of supporting this vital project. It is without doubt one of the best and most and successful summer initiatives for children with Gaelic games and fun at the heart of it all.”For more information on the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps visit www.gaa.ie/kelloggsculcamps Twitter Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement LimerickNewsKellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps return for Summer 2021By Meghann Scully – April 27, 2021 213 center_img Linkedin TAGSGAAKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Post Previous articleLimerick Post Show | Martyn CosgraveNext article€339,000 of Suspected Drugs Seized on April 26, 2021 in Limerick City – Three Men Arrested Meghann Scully WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Facebook Print Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener WhatsApplast_img read more

MMH now offers ‘Health Rides’

first_imgBatesville, In. — For many area residents, finding reliable transportation to and from medical appointments can be a struggle. That’s why Margaret Mary Health is now offering a new transportation service to its patients.Operated by LifeTime Resources, Health Rides provides wheelchair-accessible transportation Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for anyone who has an appointment at any of MMH’s 13 facilities. LifeTime Resources has years of experience in the transportation industry as it serves as operator of Catch-A-Ride, a public service providing rides to anyone within six counties in southeastern Indiana.“At Margaret Mary Health, our goal is to improve access to care for everyone in our community,” said MMH President Tim Putnam. “Without reliable transportation, patients often miss medical appointments which can lead to a lack of appropriate treatment and poorer health outcomes in the long run. We are proud to offer a dependable solution to patients who can’t drive or may not have a vehicle. This allows patients to instead focus their attention on what’s most important – improving their health.”The Health Rides program was made possible thanks to a generous grant provided by MMH’s Foundation. The grant was funded by donations made by the William A. and Martha H. Hillenbrand Foundation, attendees at the MMH 2017 gala and MMH team members.Cost to ride the Health Rides shuttle is $3 one-way. For individuals who meet certain financial criteria, a Fast Pass card may be available which provides transportation free of charge. To reserve a ride, call 812-717-1123.
