The Volunteer Center of the United Way of Vance County is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award.
The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers. Through the years, the award has been bestowed on thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their local community.
Each county selects up to ten individuals, businesses, groups/teams and one paid Director of Volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their communities. One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, which is awarded to the top 20 volunteers in the state. A local committee evaluates the nominations.
Nomination forms for Vance County volunteers can be picked up at the United Way office at 212 Dabney Drive or can be found on the United Way of Vance County website: www.unitedwayvance.org.
Please return the completed form to the United Way office or mail (212 Dabney Drive, Henderson, NC 27536) or fax (252-492-9111) no later than Friday, October 25, 2013.
