Community Board No. 8 Bronx Seeks Nominations for Community Service Award
Bronx, New York, March 1, 2011 – Bronx Community Board No. 8 is pleased to announce that it is accepting nominations for the Bronx Community Board No. 8 2010 Community Service Award. The Community Service Award was established to acknowledge the many volunteer efforts of groups and individuals within our community. It is our belief that by recognizing our committed community volunteers, we can in some small way reward those most deserving and inspire others to follow their example.
The only criteria for consideration is that the nominee has acted on a volunteer basis to improve or enhance, in some way, the quality of life of those living or working in the Bronx Community Board No. 8 area. The nominations are open to individuals, students and organizations or groups with an interest in the community. Those who are salaried for their efforts or who perform these services as an extension of their professional responsibility are not eligible for this award.
Entries must include the name of the person or group being nominated, contact information; i.e., address and phone number, a description and nature of the volunteer work for which the nominee is being considered, including its duration and the resulting impact on the community. All contributions to our community, big and small, will be considered. The individual or organization offering the nomination must also be identified, including a contact number.
Nominations must be received by Friday, April 1, 2011 addressed to:
Robert G. Abbott, Chairperson, Community Service Award Committee, Community Board No. 8 Bronx, 5676 Riverdale Avenue, Suite 100, Bronx, NY 10471.
