Gift of Time Nominations Open

Do you know someone who gives their time to make the Ozarks a better place to live? The City of Springfield and the Council of Churches of the Ozarks encourage you to nominate this person for a Gift of Time award.

Every day across the Ozarks, hundreds of volunteers lend their time to nonprofit, public and human-service organizations. Since 1991, the Gift of Time Awards Luncheon has recognized volunteers who contribute thousands of hours to make life better for their neighbors.

An impartial team of business and civic leaders review each nominee and select 10 people as Volunteers of the Year. The honorees will be recognized at a luncheon June 13 at the Ramada Oasis Convention Center. Ten will be selected as Volunteers of the Year.

The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, April 30, 2013. Please visit www.springfieldmo.gov/giftoftime to submit your nomination.
