McKnight Foundation seeks nominations for community service award
We all know that large corporations love to cheer themselves on for giving back to the community and supporting local causes. That's all well and good. What about the people who donate their time, love, and energy without the expectation of publicity or anything else in return? Now's your chance to show them the recognition they deserve.
Past winners of the Virginia McKnight Binger Awards in Human Service are varied, and include a former-gang member who now mentors at-risk youth, two sisters who educate on nutrition, a program provider for the Twin Cities immigrant community, and an individual who advocates for the homeless population.
Know someone worthy for such an award? The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, April 8. Winners will be notified in September and honored in November. Nomination forms and additional information is available at www.mcknight.org/awards. Questions? Call 612.333.4220.
