Nominations are being accepted for the Volunteer Center of South Jersey’s sixth annual Spirit of Community Awards, Executive Director Michele Epifani announced.

“Volunteers take on many different tasks, but their goal is the same: a passionate desire to make South Jersey a better place to live,” Epifani said. “Their tireless work is worthy of celebration and recognition.”

Nominations will be accepted until Friday, Sept. 9. Honorees will be recognized on Thursday Oct. 27 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the The Mansion on Main in Voorhees. The October gathering is South Jersey’s premiere civic event and brings together government officials, nonprofit organizations, corporations and service-minded leaders to honor the contributions made daily by friends, neighbors and family members.

Non-profit and business organizations are encouraged to nominate their special volunteers to be honored at New Jersey’s largest volunteer recognition event of its kind. The community is also invited to nominate both individuals and organizations, that, they feel deserve these prestigious awards, recognized from both a national and a regional level.

“It’s important to say thank you to volunteers, they are true backbone of many agencies, including our own,” said Cody Miller, VCSJ board president.
