Judge Theresa Dellick applauded the efforts of ACTION members and supporters who are the “average people who make the biggest difference” in the Valley.
The judge in Mahoning County Court of Common Pleas Juvenile Division spoke Thursday at the banquet and fundraiser of the Alliance for Congregational Transformation Influencing Our Neighborhoods at St. Luke Church hall, 5235 South Ave. Nearly 300 people attended the 11th annual event. “Together we can make a difference,” said the speaker whose topic was “Working Together for a Safer Community.”
Citing ACTION as a faith-based organization focusing to make the community safer, Judge Dellick said its members “do the most to change the world.”
“All you have to do is look at the Bible” to see how average people did something special,” she said. She noted Jacob, Moses, Mary, Peter and Paul, who “were plucked from their villages.”
ACTION members are motivated by faith to make a commitment to improve neighborhoods.
Judge Dellick said she appreciated being in a room with people who affect lives in a positive way, calling them the “fabric” of the community.
