Richmond residents are encouraged to nominate an individual or group that has shown great volunteer work in the city.

Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives (RCRG) is accepting nominations for its annual Volunteers Are Stars Award.

There are four award categories, recognizing individual, group, youth and leadership volunteers. One winner from each category will be chosen, but all nominees will be highlighted throughout the campaign and the award event.

“When you nominate a volunteer, you’re recognizing their contributions,” said Ed Gavsie, president and CEO of RCRG.

“You’re showing the volunteer that they’ve had a positive impact on their community. It’s a great way to amplify your appreciation and gratitude.”

Gavsie added that this year, the award ceremony will return as an in-person event.

“We’re excited to be back celebrating together,” said Gavsie. 

“Hopefully, the community is just as excited, and that translates into a large number of nominations.”

Awards will be presented on April 19 during National Volunteer Week at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel.

Deadline for volunteer nominations is March 10 and can be submitted online by clicking here.
