Over the past 41 years, The Volunteer Center, a service of United Way Monterey County, has offered our community the opportunity to honor volunteers who have made significant contributions to their organizations through the Community Service Awards. This event is an excellent way for local organizations and businesses to highlight the incredible work of their volunteers and for the community to recognize its often unsung heroes. You can read more about last year's Community Service Awards here.
The 41st annual Community Service Awards (CSA) will be held on Tuesday, April 25, at the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa. This year’s CSA will recognize volunteers active at any point between January and December 2016. Each nominee will be individually recognized at the awards ceremony in April and will receive a framed certificate of achievement, a small gift of appreciation and official recognition from elected officials. Nominees and their guests enjoy a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception prior to the ceremony.
Nominations may be submitted by a non-profit or faith-based organization, public agency, school or business providing service to Monterey County communities. An organization may submit multiple nominations. An electronic nomination form can be found here. A HIGH QUALITY digital photo (minimum 200 pixels per inch) of the nominee must be submitted at the time of application completion.
Nomination fees are:
• Individual volunteer - $30
• Group of 2-4 volunteers - $35
• Group of 5 or more volunteers - $40
All nominations are due Friday, March 17, 2017. Late applications cannot be accepted.
If you have questions, please contact Tre’ Watkins, Volunteer Engagement Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or (831) 372-8026, ext. 115.
Volunteerism plays a critical role in United Way by bringing businesses, volunteers and a network of partner agencies together to create real lasting change. Give an hour. Give a Saturday. Give your best. There is no shortage of opportunities to make a difference in Monterey County.
We all have special talents. Things we can do to help. And when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. Whether it’s reading to children, or leading financial literacy classes for hard-working families... there are plenty of volunteer options available every day. Give the gift of you. Volunteer.
