Warminster Food Bank honors volunteer for 45 years of service


Warminster Food Bank recently honored 90-year-old Bucks County resident Evelyn “Evie” Dugan for her 45 years of service at the organization’s Volunteer Meeting and Holiday Breakfast held at the Five Ponds Country Club in Warminster.

In addition to being honored by Warminster Food Bank, Dugan received a Certificate of Merit from Warminster Rotary Club and a citation from state Rep. Brian Monroe (D-114th District), commending her on her years of service with the food bank, where she began volunteering in 1978.

“The foundations of communities like ours rest heavily on the backs of those in our community who give back, volunteer, and are empathetic of their neighbors,” said Monroe. “Evelyn Dugan is one of those community members. Her 45 years of volunteerism for her community and for the Warminster Food Bank has eased the discomfort and suffering of so many in our community.I give a full throated thank you Evelyn! Your community appreciates you!”

At Dugan’s celebration, Mike Cerino, executive director, Warminster Food Bank, remarked, “Evie, I want to make one thing perfectly clear, this is not a retirement, but a long overdue recognition.” Cerino continued, “So, if there ever comes a time when you think about what we have done in the last 45 years, or what we are going to do together in the next years, you can easily say to yourself, we did good, we got it right.”
