The Yuba-Sutter United Way gives two annual awards to deserving community members or local businesses, the “NANCY FERREIRA LEADERSHIP AWARD” and the "PEDRO AWARD."
The Nancy Ferreira Leadership award is given annually in memory of Nancy Ferreira to an individual or organization most significantly contributing to the Yuba-Sutter United Way campaign.
In 1999 the Yuba-Sutter United Way established the Nancy Ferreira Leadership Award in memory of the exemplary leader whose spirit, actions, values, efforts and dedication immensely benefited the citizens of the Yuba Sutter area.
The "Pedro Award" is given to an individual who is willing to help his/her fellowman without thought of personal gain. This is the Yuba-Sutter United Way’s most prestigious local award.
More than thirty-five years ago the Yuba-Sutter United Way began to receive a generous monthly contribution paid in cash, with a note stating “TO HELP OTHERS” signed “PEDRO”. A year later it was decided to borrow the Pedro name for a very special Yuba-Sutter United Way Award, this being the only award of its kind, recognizing an individual’s lifetime of caring for others.
Please call (530) 743-1847 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about how to make a nomination for one of these awards.
The awards are presented at the Yuba-Sutter United Way’s Annual Meeting and Awards Breakfast each May.
