Community members are encouraged to nominate a deserving Chester County resident to receive the Eastburn Community Service Award, presented annually in memory of Jane and Al Eastburn, both of whom served the Coatesville area as nonprofit leaders with distinction.
With the encouragement and initial funding of Dallas Krapf and the Krapf Bus Co., the Eastburn Community Service Award was established in 2016 by the Brandywine Health Foundation’s board of directors, in recognition of Jane and Al Eastburn’s service to the Coatesville area.
“Al Eastburn and his wife Jane literally gave their whole lives to the community and worked hard to make Coatesville a better place for everyone,” said Dallas Krapf.
“After Jane and then Al passed away, I wanted something to be done every year, so they would be recognized for their lifelong commitment to the community.”
The award will be given to an individual who has and/or still gives back to the Coatesville community, making a positive difference with their time, energy, expertise. While philanthropic support is an added benefit, it is not the most significant factor.
