This January, in honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, the Crispus Attucks Community Center in Lancaster, PA bestowed the Essence of Humanity Award to Mike Brubaker and his wife Cindy for their continued efforts with the Ryan C. Brubaker Foundation.

Along with their children, Mike Brubaker and his wife Cindy founded the Ryan C. Brubaker Foundation in honor of their son, Ryan, who passed away at the age of 21 years old. The Foundation not only honors Ryan’s spirit, but also raises crucial funds and awareness for youth struggling with a wide array of issues. Mike Brubaker and Cindy were honored to receive an award this year for their nonprofit work.
