STORMONT-DUNDAS-SOUTH GLENGARRY – Ontario’s Volunteer Services Awards program is again accepting nominations until Jan. 25, and MPP Jim McDonell encourages all local service organizations to nominate and recognize their volunteers.

“Volunteering brings the community together around our common values of service, sharing and caring,” said McDonell. “Local residents help Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry thrive by giving their time, skills and resources where they are most needed. Whether it is helping take those in need to appointments, helping schools deliver extra-curricular activities, volunteering with your local service club, assisting seniors in their home, organizing community events, delivering training or fundraising, every contribution is valuable and worthy of both gratitude and recognition. The annual Volunteer Services Awards recognize local residents with many years’ continuous service and nominations are easy to submit online.”

Program information, eligibility criteria, nomination forms and guides can be found online at www.ontario.ca/honoursandawards.

Adults are recognized for five or more years’ continuous service, while youth under the age of 24 are recognized for two or more years of service.

“Volunteers are the backbone of our community – let’s show them our appreciation and support,” the MPP concluded. “Without them, many programs and services that we rely on would not be available.”
