WHO IS YOUR HIDDEN HERO?
Who in your organization or neighbourhood has not received the recognition that you think they deserve for their volunteer contributions to our community or country?
Is it someone who cleans our beaches and parks or restore salmon to a stream? Someone who lends their time to help youth or coaches a sports team? Someone who visits the elderly or drives individuals to medical appointments? Someone actively engaged with the pressing issues facing our community or the less fortunate in other places? No matter what the cause, we want to hear their story!
Volunteers are an important part of any community, providing valuable services, connection and engagement. These awards are one way to highlight and celebrate the value they add to our communities and/or the lives of our community members.
I invite you and/or your organization to nominate a dedicated volunteer to be recognized as a Hidden Hero.
