      Through the years, our recipient has often helped the less fortunate by doing small things such as offering free dry cleaning to those in need. He gave numerous young college students jobs and fatherly guidance as they worked for him in one of his dry cleaning centers.
      Yes, this good man has a long record of supporting many local charities through donation of time and money. Every year as winter approached, his business was the heart of coat and clothing donations organized by different civic clubs.
