Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano recently congratulated Diane Lorenzo, SWEX Supervisor I in the Nassau County Department of Social Services, who received the Spectrum Award from the American Heart Association (AHA) at their annual awards dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club. The Spectrum Award bestows special recognition to those volunteers who have given of themselves above and beyond the call of duty. Diane received the award for the countless hours of volunteer service she gave to the AHA, as well as the thousands of dollars she raised for AHA research.
“I am so proud that we have employees like Diane Lorenzo who give of their time raising funds for the American Heart Association,” said County Executive Mangano. “Diane raised over $4000 in the past year for AHA, and is aiming for $5000 in the coming year. Knowing Diane’s dedication and resolve, she will most certainly reach her goal!”
The Department of Social Services also received the 2017 Outstanding Achievement Award for its on-going commitment to, and support of, the American Heart Association.
“Congratulations to the Department of Social Services for receiving the 2017 Outstanding Achievement Award for supporting the work of the American Heart Association,” said County Executive Mangano. “So many Nassau County DSS employees helped Diane reach her fundraising goal, and I’m confident they will continue to aid in this worthy cause.”
“Diane Lorenzo is indeed a wonderful and committed individual who spends so much of her free time raising funds for the American Heart Association. We are so proud of her being recognized as the 2017 recipient of the Spectrum Award,” said DSS Commissioner Dr. John Imhof. “As DSS Commissioner I am also proud and appreciative that our Department was recognized by the 2017 Outstanding Achievement Award—the second year in a row DSS has received this acknowledgment.”
