Award Presented by Marc Le Vier, President

A Selection of Don & Mary's Humanitarian Activities

  • They were emergency foster parents to many children in difficult circumstances. They ended up adopting many of these children and helped them get good starts in life.

  • They helped Southeast Asian refugees establish new lives in The U.S.

  • In Salt Lake City they established Literacy Volunteers of America Wasatch Front (LVAWF) to help refugees in Utah.  Don financially supported this agency  by buying a building to house the office.  They again sponsored many refugee families until his retirement.  They still support LVAWF with office space.

  • Since Donís retirement, he has served as a consultant for the United Nations in India and in Russia.
