Outstanding Service to Youth

The Bartley Corporation, of Ashton, Md, was selected as the recipient of the 2007 Outstanding Service to Youth Award in the Business category for its outstanding volunteer work. This annual award, sponsored by the Montgomery County Commission on Children and Youth and The Gazette Newspapers, recognizes those who have dedicated themselves to serving young people. The Bartley Corporation was nominated for the award by the “Our House Youth Home” located in Brookville, MD for whom Buck and Tom Bartley have made numerous donations of support, including building a new commercial kitchen, teaching carpentry skills to “Our House” residents and other much needed repair projects. The Bartley Corporation was also recognized “as one of the strongest supporters for the Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County.” Habitat is currently building 12 new homes in Burtonsville and Bartley donated all the labor to install concrete footers, walls and slabs.
