May 22, 2017 – In recognition of his dedication and commitment to The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore’s annual campaign, Yanky Schorr was presented with the 2017 Zelda Miller Award, which honors young adult leaders for their dedication to the annual campaign.
In addition to his contribution to the organization’s annual campaign, Yanky has been involved with The Associated for two years in the capacities of sitting on the Young Leadership Council and as a member of the Real Estate Committee.
Outside of The Associated, Yanky is a founding board member of Chai Lifeline’s Mid-Atlantic regional office, a student mentor at the Community College of Baltimore County, Co-Chair of the Baltimore Shabbat Project, and a member of the Suburban Orthodox Congregation’s building committee.
Professionally, Yanky works in business development and marketing for Owings Mills-based Lewis Contractors. In his role, he pursues new project and client opportunities. As he establishes and fosters quality relationships with clients and business partners, his primary focus is cultivating connections specifically with organizations seeking to improve the landscape of Baltimore and its surrounding areas.
Each year, the Zelda Miller Award recipient is chosen by campaign professionals and is an honor made possible by the friends, family and colleagues of Zelda Miller who, as administrative assistant to two campaign directors, inspired volunteers and staff with her enthusiasm and dedication.
The annual campaign is the primary fundraising vehicle for all of The Associated’s agencies and programs supporting the organization’s mission to build and strengthen the Jewish community. From summer camps that build lifelong skills to supportive networks that help seniors live with grace and dignity, the annual campaign makes an impact in the lives of many.
