ELKHART — The Community Foundation of Elkhart County is honoring longtime volunteer Dick Osborne by giving Susanna’s Kitchen a gift of $19,000 – $1,000 for each each year Osborne guided the ministry before stepping down last year.

Nearly 20 years ago, the retired real estate agent and restaurateur agreed to take a volunteer position guiding Susanna’s Kitchen after his wife died. He said the Rev. Larry Kurtz opened the door by asking him to fill the role for six months.
