Davis, Food Bank Will Receive Regional Awards From Community Development Organization
Local community volunteers from Allegheny, Washington and Westmoreland counties will be honored Oct. 17 when Mon Valley Initiative holds its 30th annual community awards dinner at the Sunset Room, located along Route 48 in Elizabeth Township.
MVI’s community development partners will recognize volunteers from their municipalities during the ceremony, a spokesman said. MVI also will honor state Rep. Austin Davis with its Sen. H. John Heinz III Award for Community Service and Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank with its Regional Partnership Award.

He started his radio career at the former WFFM-FM radio in Braddock. His father, the late Al McDowell, a newscaster at KDKA-TV and WTAE-TV, was born in Clairton and started his career at WEDO, McKeesport.
