North Miami, Fla. – North Miami Councilman Alix Desulme has been selected as one of the recipients of the prestigious 2021 Good Samaritan Award, presented by the Schulz Foundation at the recent 15th annual Haitian Community Thanksgiving Brunch at the Oasis in Miami.

The Good Samaritan award recognizes the highest achievements in serving others; and celebrates individuals who are always there to lend a helping hand, particularly, when there is no recognition or praise for the work.

Every year, the foundation recognizes leaders who continue to demonstrate loyalty, pastoral services, and dedication to the community. Past recipients of the Good Samaritan Award include Father Reginals Jean Mary and Dr. Marie Etienne.

COMMUNITY COMPASSION “I’m incredibly humbled and thankful for being selected as a recipient for the 2021 Good Samaritan Award. I’d like to thank the Shulz Foundation for recognizing my community involvement and ongoing efforts to help those who are in need,” said Desulme.
