The founder of a Washington Township-based charity was awarded a prestigious state volunteer leadership award last month, after being recognized for her work helping local women in need.
Susan Rose, founder of the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation headquartered on McClure Drive, was honored for her work at the 2014 New Jersey State Governor’s Jefferson Awards for Volunteer Leadership in Newark.
“This is a great honor for our Foundation, and for our Mothers Matter program,” Rose said. “For me, the emphasis is on the word volunteer — and the many wonderful men, women and children whose volunteer efforts helped create this amazing charity, who help it make a difference in so many lives.”
She was among 21 other state residents who were honored for public and community service, after being nominated by longtime supporter Mark Lohbauer.
