VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: October 2018
Leo DeLuca LIVES UNITED by “bringing the past to life to inspire the future” as he has read to the visually impaired. United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Kelly as our Community Volunteer of the Month.
A Dayton native, Leo returned to the area in 2012 after college at Ohio University and time in North Carolina. A freelance writer with a voracious appetite for matters historical, Leo took a job with Dayton History. While writing about local businesses, he came into contact with an 85 year old local business founder with whom he struck up a friendship. His friend’s vision was slowly failing and Leo asked whether the friend would perhaps like to have books read to him. A year later, they are still meeting one a week for about an hour and a half. “We mostly read history,” says Leo. “We bring the past to life in my work life and I get to do it with this man, which is so inspiring in the present.” Forming the friendship has been its own reward: “In giving, we receive.” Leo also does reporting for WYSO and has had pieces published in Dayton magazine as well as other national and online publications.
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Leo DeLuca as our Community Volunteer of the Month for October, 2018.
