 Jay Kapp Receives National Volunteer Award

UCP of Georgia Board Member Jay Kapp was honored with the Ethel Hausman Volunteer of the Year Award.

The award is given to one volunteer in the United States whose efforts have made an outstanding contribution to United Cerebral Palsy and the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities. Jay received the award at the United Cerebral Palsy Association Annual Conference in San Diego on April 26, 2013. 

This prestigious award recognizes one volunteer in the United States whose efforts have made an outstanding contribution to UCP and to the quality of life for people with disabilities. UCP celebrity ambassador Cheryl Hines presented the award at a banquet attended by some 200 guests, including many of Kapp’s family members.

Jay Kapp has been a UCP of Georgia volunteer for over a decade, currently serving as Board Vice Chairman. He plays a leadership role in fundraising efforts, and provides marketing expertise and support through Kapp Koncepts, a web design and marketing firm he founded in 2001.

“Direct care organizations like United Cerebral Palsy are typically understaffed and often need extra support. As a volunteer I believe it is an obligation to help fill that gap, to enable UCP to carry on its very important work,” said Kapp. “I had a sister with cerebral palsy, and it is rewarding to know that my contributions help other families caring for loved ones with disabilities.”
