2016 Volunteer Awards – Nominations Sought


The Barry County United Way & Volunteer Center is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2016 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.  The Barry County United Way & Volunteer Center hosts this recognition event during National Volunteer Week each year.  This year, the 2016 Volunteer Awards will be held at the Walldorff Ballroom on Thursday, April 14, 2016 from 6:00-7:00pm.


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, Community Health Award, and Group Volunteer Award.  Nominations must be postmarked by Monday, March 21, 2016 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.  Winners will be announced at an evening reception event.  Each award recipient will receive recognition at the event and each nominee will receive a certificate of appreciation.


We hope that you will take a few moments to submit a nomination and recognize a volunteer you know is doing great work for the community.  If you have any questions, please contact me at morgan@bcunitedway.org or (269) 945-4010.
