White House to Honor Wayne Resident

Tolli will be honored as a Champion of Change on Friday as part of a national recognition program.

Resident Dom Tolli will be honored as a Champion of Change at the White House Friday afternoon.

Tolli has led a team of developers to create a variety of Smartphone applications to help people be better prepared for emergencies and during disasters.

The team has created applications to assist users during and after a hurricane and to teach them about first aid.

Tolli also helped create a Ready Rating service to assist businesses, schools, and organizations to determine their disaster readiness. The service assists users to create a customized emergency response plan, and the ability to compare their status with others in their industry or neighborhood.

The Champions of Change program was created to honor ordinary Americans doing great work in their communities.  Each week, a different sector is highlighted and groups of Champions, ranging from educators to entrepreneurs to community leaders, are recognized for the work they are doing to serve and strengthen their communities.

“President Obama knows how important the American Red Cross is to not only providing humanitarian relief but also building resilient communities,” said Jon Carson, Deputy Assistant to the President. “The American Red Cross Champions of Change we are honoring are a reflection of the generosity and compassion deeply rooted in our national identity.”

Tolli volunteers with the American Red Cross.

Watch the event live online at whitehouse.gov/live at 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Let's hope Tolli honors "Barry-The-Marxist" by voting for Mitt in November.

With Obama-Biden up 14% in New Jersey it will be a wasted vote, besides you forget community organizer vs vulture capitalist, jobs exporting, corporate raider, off shore tax sheltering, demagogue, medicare vouchering, tax cuts for the rich advocate paid for by every one else, as other mothers sons serve at the edge of freedoms shinning while three generations of Romneys evaded service, Mit the twit as the Brits call him?
