The Outstanding Achievement in Community Outreach and Service reflects the ACFE’s strong belief that members should be active contributors to their communities and be committed to helping improve the places where they live and work. The recipient of the Outstanding Achievement in Community Outreach and Service award must demonstrate that they have been an active volunteer in projects that have resulted in a recognized improvement of their community. This can be demonstrated by the commitment of time or donations to a charitable cause.
Last year the #FeedAFamily program, founded by ACFE member Shahid Yakub, distributed a total of 3,500 food hampers in Kenya — enough food for up to 15,000 people for a month.
For Outstanding Achievement in Outreach and Service, congratulations to Shahid Yakub!
