Marge Thorne, of Bremerton, received the 2011 C. Keith Birkenfeld Humanitarian Award from the Bainbridge Community Foundation, according to a statement.
The award, in its third year, is given to a Kitsap County resident who exemplifies leadership in volunteer service and commitment to the community. Thorne’s involvement in the community spans six decades and includes a variety of nonprofit organizations in the county.
The Crisis Clinic of the Peninsulas appreciates the honoring of one of our founding mothers, who has given to the community not only through the Crisis Clinic, but also the American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Kitsap County Juvenile Court Diversion Program, the state’s Parent Teacher Association, United Way of Kitsap County, Chief Kitsap Boy Scouts of America, Camp Fire Girls, The YMCA and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Thank you so much C. Keith Birkenfeld Memorial Trust for the recognition, and thank you Marge Thorne for your continued service to our community.
