The Jerome Foundation and United Memorial Medical Center Foundation are seeking nominations for the 28th annual Health and Humanitarian Award of Genesee County.
The award recognizes outstanding men and women whose volunteer efforts have improved the physical, emotional or spiritual well-being of the greater Genesee County area. “We are fortunate to have many caring and committed volunteers devoted to the sick or to those in need, and helping build a stronger, healthier community for all of us”, said Justin Calarco-Smith, president of The Jerome Foundation. He noted the accomplishments of Dorothy Baker, the 2011 Health and Humanitarian recipient, whose volunteer efforts and leadership with The Jerome Center Gift Shop have raised funds to support improvements at UMMC.
Nomination forms are available from UMMC Foundation Office at 127 North Street, calling 585-344-5300, or online at www.ummc.org. Organizations or individuals may nominate candidates. Consideration will be given to actual accomplishments achieved through volunteer service and subsequent improvements to quality of life. Nominations should be submitted on or before September 28.
The 2012 award winner will be honored at a luncheon on Friday, December 7 at Terry Hills Restaurant.
