Nominate your favorite volunteer!

Do you know a tireless volunteer in the community?

Consider nominating him or her for United Way's annual Volunteer Recognition program. Not only will your little helper appreciate being recognized, they'll have fun with the process. That's because, this year, things are a little different; instead of just filling out a form, 2008 nominees have the opportunity to showcase their volunteerism via a two-minute video. Community members will select this year's winners by voting during National Volunteer Week -- which runs from April 27- May 3 -- on United Way's website.

Nomination categories include youth, young adults, retirees, businesses and groups. Nominee's volunteer efforts should fall under one of United Way’s Agenda for Change categories, which include Educational Preparedness, Financial Stability, and Basic Needs.

The deadline for nominations is 11:59 p.m. on April 11, 2008.
