Summit Electric Supply won the nationally recognized Communitas Award in the category of Leadership in Community Service.
“Our judges found that Summit Electric Supply clearly exhibits the spirit of communitas, a Latin word that means people coming together for the good of a community,” wrote Director Ed Dalheim.
Communitas nominees are evaluated based on the extent and effectiveness of their program, including its size and potential scope, Dalheim added. Leadership winners are selected because of their excellence in multiple programs.
“We are pleased to join so many other businesses and professional organizations across the country in receiving the Communitas Award for Leadership in Community Service,” said Sheila Hernandez, vice president of marketing.
Judges reviewed Summit’s philosophy of giving along with summaries of selected service projects among the 43 community and nonprofit organizations and causes the company supported in 2009.
