DUXBURY, Mass. -- The South Shore Community Action Council Inc. (SSCAC) annual Lela Ray President's Award for Community Service was recently presented to Paul and Netta Vercollone.
Paul Vercollone, vice president of VERC Enterprises, an independent convenience store/gasoline station operator, and his wife were acknowledged at the Radisson Hotel in Plymouth which was attended by community organizers and politicians including Representative Frank M. Hynes.
Residents of Marshfield, the Vercollones have long supported numerous community projects, in particular the Marshfield Boys & Girls Club, a safe haven for recreation and a variety of supervised activities for greater than 4,000 area youths.
"The Vercollone's own and operate three car washes and often allow community groups such as schools to use their car wash facilities for fundraising," VERC Enterprises spokesperson, Jim Farrell, told CSNews Online.
The SSCAC provides a wide-range of services to low-income individuals and families on the South Shore, explained Vercollone in a released statement. "It is an honor and a privilege to receive this award from such a vital regional organization," he said.
