Volunteer award nominations being sought
Nomination are now being accepted for the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards, with the deadline set for April 15.
According to a news release issued last week, the awards look to acknowledge those that go above and beyond in their volunteer positions.
There are 17 awards presented to Canadians for their volunteer efforts. Recipients of these awards have the chance to receive a $5,000 (regional) or a $10,000 (national) grant for a not-for-profit organization. Only those nominated will be eligible for an award.
Volunteers are an essential part of our communities, province, and country. They are your neighbours, coaches and church groups, your firefighters and even members of your family.
The awards recognize those who go beyond his or her duties, an organization that makes a difference, or someone that has spent their whole life giving back.
