FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) January 31, 2023
The Frederick Nonprofit Alliance of the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for their annual Touching Lives in Frederick County Awards. These awards honor the dedicated employees of 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations who provide direct service to members of our community.
"When you consider what makes Frederick County such a special place, you can't help but notice our connected community of nonprofit organizations supporting and sustaining our vulnerable neighbors. The Chamber is immensely proud that we're partners in this critical work through our Frederick Nonprofit Alliance, featuring so many wonderful agencies and caring people. The Touching Lives Awards lets us spotlight those front-line nonprofit workers and give them the credit they deserve for their heroic work," said Rick Weldon, President & CEO of the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce.
The Touching Lives Award offers a moment of public recognition for non-management staff members who have demonstrated outstanding involvement and commitment to those they serve. Nominees are not required to belong to an organization that is a member of the Chamber of Commerce.
“We often see the positive impact nonprofits have on our community, but we forget there are people behind that impact. People who have dedicated their time, talents, and hard work to fulfilling a need. The Touching Lives Award allows us to appreciate and share those people’s stories and - hopefully - inspire others to do good in the world,” commented Sarah Lynn, chair of the Frederick Nonprofit Alliance.
The nomination application and other information can be found online at frederickchamber.org/touchinglivesnominations. The deadline for submissions is February 22, 2023.
