Janet and Troy Weiss were awarded the United Way of Anchorage de Tocqueville Society Community Service Award on June 11. The press release shares the couples' extraordinary commitment to their community over the years.

Unitd Way of Anchorage's President, Michelle Brown had this to say: “On reflection, though, it’s not the volume (high as it is) of Janet and Troy’s community work that is most noteworthy. It’s the quality of their engagement. They are as comfortable being a volunteer in the trenches pounding nails, as they are in a boardroom pounding out a 10-year action plan to improve graduation rates or a strategy to help more low-income families own their own homes.

“Whatever the role Janet and Troy are serving, they fill it genuinely, consistently, and authentically. When they walk shoulder to shoulder with you, it’s because they feel it and live it,” Brown added.
