The Jerome Foundation and United Memorial Medical Center Foundation are seeking nominations for the 29th 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 significant accomplishments of Ed and Beverly Corcoran, the 2012 Health and Humanitarian Award recipients, who organize and run Stephen’s Table, a soup kitchen that provides lunches six times a week for those in need of a nutritious meal.
Nomination forms are available from UMMC Foundation Office at 127 North St., 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 27.
The 2013 award winner will be honored at a luncheon on Friday, Dec. 6 at Terry Hills Restaurant.
