This past year has been like no other for our entire country. However, we have seen members of our community – our neighbors, our friends, our colleagues – stepping up to do their part in volunteering to help others. THIS year, compared to all others, is truly a year to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of volunteers in Barry County.
The Barry County United Way & Volunteer Center is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the VIRTUAL 2021 Volunteer Awards. The Volunteer Awards recognize, honor and celebrate residents within Barry County who have given so generously of their time and talent for the benefit of the community.
This event is an excellent opportunity to celebrate volunteers who work in a variety of areas. Nominations are being accepted for the following awards: Volunteer of the Year, Youth Volunteer of the Year, Outstanding Mentor Award, Continuing Service Award, Corporate Service Award, and Group Volunteer Award. Nominations must be postmarked by Friday, June 11, 2021 to be considered.
Any organization that utilizes volunteers in Barry County is eligible to submit nominations. This includes nonprofit agencies, service clubs and organizations, churches, and even businesses that are involved in employee volunteering. This year, due to COVID-19 regulations, our annual ceremony will be virtual – tune in Thursday, July 8 at 4pm! Winners will still be receiving awards and all nominees will receive a certificate of appreciation.
We hope that you will take a few moments to submit a nomination and recognize a volunteer or volunteers that you know are doing great work for the community. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (269) 945-4010.
