Coughlin receives Becker Salon Leadership Award

The second recipient of this year’s Becker Salon Leadership Award is Nancy Coughlin, executive director of Neighbor to Neighbor, a nonprofit organization serving residents in need throughout the Greenwich area. Becker Salon, located at 380 Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, established its annual Leadership Award in 2013 to honor outstanding leaders in the community who are making a difference.

The award is given to leaders, male or female, of 501(c) (3) nonprofit organizations of any size in Fairfield and Westchester counties. Leaders are chosen who are successfully fulfilling a mission and who demonstrate passion and commitment to a cause. Three leaders will be awarded this year.

“We want to recognize those who do so much to benefit the lives of others,” said Becker Chicaiza, salon founder. “Nancy has worked hard to assist those in need in our own backyard.” Leadership award winners receive a complimentary Becker Salon experience — a haircut, color and style, a plaque and a donation to their organization.

Neighbor to Neighbor started in 1974 when a group of concerned citizens started collecting and distributing clothing for the less fortunate in the area. Over the years, the organization has grown and now offers three food programs, including a food pantry, and a clothing program providing basic living essentials at no cost to thousands of Greenwich area residents. Neighbor to Neighbor coordinates a number of fundraising events to collect food and raise money for programs to serve the needy.

Earlier this year, the Becker Salon Leadership Award went to Mary Grace Henry of Reverse The Course. Previous award recipients are Shari Shapiro, Executive Director of Kids in Crisis; Lucy Day, a founding member and former president of the Breast Cancer Alliance; Kevin Plancher, MD, founder and Chairman of the Board of the Orthopaedic Foundation; and Jieun Wax, YWCA Greenwich Board Vice Chair Development.
