"I Want to Do Something Memorable"

2018 Spirit Award Winner: Pastor Curtis Whittaker, Sr.

The Spirit Awards celebrate passionate, courageous individuals who are dedicated to serving their communities and exhibiting what it means to Live United. With the help of The Times of Northwest Indiana, United Way of Porter County collected 27 incredible stories of volunteerism throughout the region!

A volunteer selection committee then chose eight extraordinary individuals for the 2018 Spirit Awards.

One winner was Curtis Whittaker Sr. Not only is Curtis a pastor at Progressive Community Church in Gary, but he also helps maintain the FAITH Farm there. To read more about Curtis' work, click here.
