Volunteers recognized for service and courage through hard COVID times

RCRG's Volunteers Are Stars Awards in Richmond are back
Nominations for volunteers
After being cancelled off in 2020, the Volunteers Are Stars Awards are back in a new, digital format.

For the next three weeks, Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives (RCRG) will profile 21 outstanding individuals or organizations that exemplify the spirit of volunteerism in Richmond.

The 21 are nominees for RCRG’s Volunteers Are Stars Awards. Three winners in each of the four categories will be selected and announced at a virtual ceremony on April 22.

As part of its revised community awards celebration, RCRG will post the nominee profiles on its various social media platforms.

Nominees include individuals, groups, youth and not-for-profit leaders that are integral and outstanding contributors to our community, said RCRG.

“The Volunteers Are Stars Awards are back,” said RCRG in an email, “so we can come together – virtually, of course – to thank the many Richmond residents who have selflessly and courageously given their time to make our community stronger, healthier and more resilient, especially during the past 12 months.”

While the ceremony and announcement of winners will happen virtually, RCRG will be delivering the awards to the recipients personally and safely.

Profiles of the nominees can be found here, and will be posted periodically on RCRG’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages until April 24, at the conclusion National Volunteer Week.
