Honor a volunteer whose giving spirit exemplifies, “Be the Change!” This Friday, March 27 is the cut-off date for nominations to recognize volunteers in these six categories:
- Youth (up to 18 yrs old),
- Adult (19 – 61 years old),
- Lifetime of Service (62+ years old with a notable history of service),
- Group (2 or more persons),
- Volunteer Leadership (providing leadership through involvement with community projects such as a task force, board of directors, or nonprofit organization.) and
- Arts & Culture (individual adult or group).
The National Volunteer Week theme this year is “Celebrating People in Action.”
Director Chris Henkel says, “We’ve received great nominations so far, but we’re still looking for volunteers to recognize in all categories, especially in the Youth category.”
Harry Sydney, founder of My Brother’s Keeper, Inc. and winner of 3 Super Bowl rings, is this year’s keynote speaker. Harry has a powerful personal story and is using his life experience to mentor boys and men – teaching about respect, integrity, responsibility and goal setting.
The Golden Heart Volunteer Celebration will be held the evening of April 30 at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay. At the event, each nominee receives a complimentary dinner and is individually recognized. Award recipients receive an art piece designed by Plum Bottom Pottery and $500 to give to a Door County charity of their choice.
