The LaGrange County Community Foundation (LCCF) Board of Directors is asking local residents to submit nominations for this year’s LCCF “Heart of Gold Award.” The award honors an ordinary county citizen who has consistently displayed a volunteer spirit which has made a difference in the lives of others.
The LCCF Board of Directors will select the 2012 recipient of the “Heart of Gold Award” from nominations received. The recipient will be an individual who identifies a need and fulfills it, recognizes and acts upon opportunities, shares time and energy for the sake of others, overcomes unusual challenges in serving others, renders a service which changes lives, works to create positive change, inspires others to volunteer, and/or performs an exceptional act of kindness.
All nominees will be recognized for their service. The award recipient will have the opportunity to direct a $1,000 grant to the LaGrange County charity of his or her choice from a list approved and provided by LCCF, and will have his or her name engraved on a plaque on display in the community room in the LCCF building.
Recognizing and encouraging dedicated volunteer service is one aspect of the mission of LCCF which is to inspire and sustain generosity, leadership and service in our community.
The “Heart of Gold Award” nomination form is available on the homepage of the LCCF website www.lccf.net or at the office located at 109 E. Central Ave., Ste. 3, LaGrange, IN, 46761. The deadline for applications is Friday, Aug. 31, 2012.
