The Rev. Joseph L. Levesque, C.M. Institute for Civic Engagement and its director, Dr. David Taylor, were honored by Our Lady of Angels Association during the annual Vincentian Charities Dinner, which was held May 19, 2016, at the Niagara Falls Country Club.
Also recognized for their work in improving the conditions of those living in the Niagara Falls community were Tom Lowe, director of ReNU Niagara, the Rev. Jimmy Rowe, a community leader who is involved with NU’s urban ministry program, and Seth Piccirillo, director of community development in Niagara Falls and co-founder of LiveNF.
The proceeds from the dinner support programs for the poor, which receive grants through the Vincentian community’s Eastern Province Grant Fund. Many local organizations have received grants from this fund.
The Levesque Institute was established in September 2011 to reinforce Niagara University’s commitment to the region by strengthening existing community partnerships and forming new town-gown relationships. It encompasses three of the university’s flagship service-oriented programs, ReNU Niagara, Learn and Serve Niagara, and Border Community SERVICE. The institute also serves as the primary resource for community members looking to partner with NU’s student, faculty, and staff.
