The Ron Sweeney Community Champion Award, which recognizes a Prospera Credit Union employee whose actions embody Ron Sweeney’s spirit of volunteerism, was recently awarded to Sean Melia, manager of Prospera’s Mission Branch and volunteer with a variety of local organizations.
Along with the award, a $1,000 donation is made to the charity of the recipient’s choice.
He chose to donate the money to the Mission Hospice Society’s children’s bereavement camp at Zajac Ranch.
Melia is a dedicated volunteer in Mission. As well as Mission Hospice, he has been involved with and supports the Mission Mid Day Rotary Club, the Mission Economic Development Select Committee, Community Futures North Fraser, Mission Community Services Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley, Union Gospel Mission and the Humane Society.
