Annual Volunteer Awards

We are now taking nominations for 2015 Outstanding Volunteer Awards.   This event provides an opportunity to appreciate and recognize volunteers in the community.  These volunteers are awarded in five categories: Youth, Adult, Senior, Business and Group. The United Way William B. Quarton Society committee determines the top three finalists in each category and the winners are selected by public vote on United Way’s website.  Last year, we had over 40 nominations and over 7,200 votes!  As part of the award, each finalist receives $500 donation from United Way to donate to a nonprofit of their choice.  Winners will be announced in April, 2015, more event details will follow.  Please use the form below to submit your nominations.
