Montgomery, Alabama – Nominees for the Volunteer of the Year awards run the gamut from high school students who read to children at Common Ground Montgomery to seniors answering phones at Jackson Hospital. None of them seeks the spotlight, but all of them are contributing to their community through time given to others.
HandsOn River Region is accepting nominations for the 2018 Volunteer of the Year through March 19. All nominees will be recognized and receive a certificate and gift during the ceremony on April 26 at Trinity Presbyterian Church.
For more than 40 years, the awards ceremony has become the region’s largest volunteer recognition event, honoring individuals and groups who give their time and talent to improve their community and the overall quality of life. HandsOn River Region and the Junior League of Montgomery host the awards celebration each year during National Volunteer Week in April.
Awards are presented to outstanding individuals and groups whose efforts have made a positive impact on the River Region. Thanks to event sponsor ASE Credit Union, a $300 cash contribution will be made on behalf of each recipient to the nominating nonprofit agency.
The categories include:
- Adult Group
