CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Today, Chesterfield County announced the first annual Chesterfield Community Champions event honoring residents who volunteer their time and resources to effect positive change in their communities.
“We know that Chesterfield County residents go above and beyond each day to serve our community and the greater world, and we want to recognize these exceptional people,” said Kelly Booth, community engagement coordinator – volunteer services. “This event offers a unique opportunity to bring together Chesterfield residents, organizations and businesses for the first time to recognize their outstanding work in the field of volunteerism.”
Awards will be given to winners from seven categories of volunteers: Youth (ages 12 and under), Teen (ages 13 and older), Youth Group (two or more volunteers under age 18), Adult (ages 18 to 59), Senior (ages 60 and over), Group (two or more volunteers with no age restriction) and Organization (a business, church, etc.).
“Each year, approximately 62.8 million Americans volunteer,” Booth continued. “They provide services and support to individuals, organizations, communities and more which would otherwise be unavailable to many people.”
To nominate a person or group, please visit the Chesterfield Community Champions webpage to complete a nomination form. Nominations are open now through Friday, Feb. 7, 2020.
Chesterfield Community Champions will be held at the Chesterfield Career and Technical Center (CTC) @ Hull on Thursday, April 2, 2020 from 7-9 p.m.
