Faith Dickinson Receives Humanitarian of the Year Award from the Western Pennsylvania Apartment Association for Her Commitment to the Community

Cranberry Twp, PA - December 2013: Church Restoration Group, LLC and D. T. Mistick would like to congratulate Faith Dickinson on receiving the Humanitarian of the Year Award from the Western Pennsylvania Apartment Association (WPAA) at their annual banquet recently. Ms. Dickinson was recognized for her work on the WPAA Annual Food Drive benefitting the Salvation Army.

Over 6,000 items were collected from apartment communities belonging to the WPAA, which were then picked up, brought to the D. T. Mistick facilities in Cranberry Township where they were separated, boxed up and delivered to the seven Salvation Army locations in the tri-county area of Beaver, Butler and Allegheny.

A team of over 30 people who are all members of the WPAA, gathered together to coordinate their efforts to collect, pick up, pack and deliver the food so that 100 families would benefit. Monies collected from a 50/50 raffle, proceeds from a golf outing and other donations were collected to fund the project.
