Volunteer Manitoba is extending their deadline for nominations until Friday for a list of awards they present every year. Their Executive Director Noreen Miean says they have awards in several categories including the Lieutenant Governor and Premiers Volunteer Service Awards. She adds Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries has a family volunteer award, there’s an arts and culture award from Investors Group, Safeway has a food for all award looking at volunteers in the area of food security and food availability so meal programs and food banks. She says a new one this year is the Association of Manitoba Municipalities looking for any individual who has demonstrated outstanding leadership within their community and that is specific to any place outside of Winnipeg.
