Jeff Homan, Chief Safety Steward, United Steelworkers Local 15320 Named Recipient of United Way's Prestigious Joseph A. Beirne Community Services Award 2010


Alexandria, VA United Way Worldwide has named Jeff Homan, chief safety steward of United Steelworkers Local 15320 in Mountain View, Wyoming, as the recipient of this year's prestigious Joseph A. Beirne Community Services Award.

An enthusiastic supporter and volunteer for United Way of Southwest Wyoming for more than 20 years, Jeff Homan has served on the board of directors for four years and as head of the committee for an annual volunteer service day event since 2004. His community involvement extends beyond United Way and Jeff is a volunteer paramedic in his community.

"Jeff is a tireless leader, volunteer and friend to the United Way movement. He truly exemplifies the legacy of Joseph Beirne," said Brian Gallagher, president and CEO of United Way Worldwide. "His philanthropic commitment isn't about receiving recognition for his efforts, it's about ensuring that families are succeeding and communities are strengthened."

Established in 1974, United Way's Joseph A. Beirne Community Services Award honors the memory of Joseph A. Beirne, the first president of the Communications Workers of America and the first labor representative to serve as president of United Community Funds and Councils of America (now United Way Worldwide). The award recognizes union members for outstanding volunteer service with United Way.
