Lieutenant Governor Janice Filmon is requesting nominations for her Making a Difference Community Awards. The Manager of Communications and Outreach for Volunteer Manitoba Dawn Bourbonnais says there are eleven awards to be presented. She says anyone who’s giving their time to their community for whatever reason can be nominated whether they’re working with young children or working in a shelter. She explains there’s some specific awards that have changed this year so RBC is looking for anyone who volunteers to help young people prepare for the future and Investors Group is looking for volunteers who serve their time to help grow an organization financially and they’re just looking for anyone who is donating their time and want to recognize as many volunteers in Manitoba as they possibly can.
To nominate a volunteer or for more information and a list of all eleven awards you can go to their website www.volunteermanitoba.ca/awards. The deadline is next Friday.
