Excerpt from the San Jose Mercury News - 02/08/2010
"[The Sequoia Award of Redwood City California] recognizes an outstanding individual and company for volunteer work. This year the individual award goes to Larry Purcell of the Catholic Worker House. Purcell founded the Catholic Worker House in 1975 to serve the needs of the poor. He has also worked with the Philanthropic Ventures Foundation for the past 15 years to develop and implement new strategies to serve the homeless, the hungry and poor in Redwood City.

The company recipient, Recology San Mateo County, was selected for its community work with such programs as Rebuilding Together, Early Bird Preschool and Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula.

The Sequoia Awards was founded by community leaders in 1991 with a single award of $500 to one student. Since then, the organization has distributed more than $1 million toward the college educations of 301 students. The organization receives donations from individuals and local companies each year and is operated through the volunteer work of the board of directors."
