The Princeton Area Community Foundation is proud to honor Rev. David McAlpin, founder of Habitat for Humanity-Trenton, with the 2015 Annual Leslie “Bud” Vivian Award for Community Service.
Community Foundation staff and board members, Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church members, and well-wishers from the nonprofit community in Mercer County were among those in attendance at Sunday’s ceremony at the Witherspoon Church in Princeton.
“I feel it is about the highest honor I could receive because the Community Foundation really identifies people who have made major contributions to the community,” Rev. McAlpin said.
The Vivian Award for Community Service, established in 1995 by members of the Princeton University’s Class of 1942 and 16 local organizations, is awarded annually. It recognizes a person who exemplifies the late Bud Vivian’s commitment to serve the Princeton community. It is made possible through the Vivian Memorial Fund, an endowed fund of the Princeton Area Community Foundation.
