WHO IS YOUR
Volunteer of the Year Award Criteria
United Way strives to advance the common good. But we don’t do it alone. We need the heads, hands, and hearts of committed people to help us tackle the problems facing our communities. Each of us has special talents, things we do to help. We want to recognize an individual who gives of their time and talents to make a positive impact in the community. On Thursday, March 28, during our 2013 Community Recognition Event, we will announce this year’s MetroWest/495 Corridor Volunteer of the Year Award recipient.
United Way was able to connect over 3,360 volunteers in the MetroWest /495 Corridor region for a total of more than 19,460 hours last year. That's equivalent to a savings of $528,144 for local non-profits! We know volunteerism is essential to small and large organizations alike. The United Way of Tri-County is committed to recognizing and celebrating outstanding volunteer service.
The MetroWest/495 Corridor Volunteer of the Year Award will honor someone who is dedicated to volunteering within our 34 local United Way of Tri-County communities (visit uwotc.org for a list of our communities). This can be someone who volunteers time with a local school, government entity, or a non-profit. We welcome nominations for all volunteers, not exclusively those who volunteer specifically through United Way.
