John W. Danforth Company

Theresa Hill Most Recent Power of our People Award Recipient

Danforth’s CEO Kevin “Duke” Reilly and President Robert Beck were please to present the Power of our People Award to Theresa Hill, Subcontract Coordinator in Danforth’s Victor office. Duke and Robert nominated Theresa for the award after learning of the “Pay It Forward” drive she arranged over the past several months. Throughout the summer at each of Danforth’s three employee summer appreciation lunches, Theresa encouraged her co-workers to donate the money they would have spent on lunch to purchase school supplies, clothing and personal care items for the children of veterans who live in low income housing on the Canandaigua VA Medical Center property.

Theresa’s “Pay It Forward” drive supports one of Danforth’s Key Strategies – community engagement, and demonstrates the leadership she brings to the Rochester region office and the company.

The donation was also covered by the local news and can be read here: http://www.mpnnow.com/news/20180824/danforth-donates-supplies-to-canandaigua-va-students

About the Power of Our People Award

Our most important asset is our people.

The Power of Our People Award is given to those who go beyond the call of duty day-in and day-out.

We are committed to investing in our employees to develop them professionally and personally so that the legacy of our founder, John W. Danforth, will live on.
