In observance of National Volunteer Week, the Brooke County Commissioners are asking residents to nominate volunteers in your community.
This will be the fourth year the commissioners recognize residents who quietly volunteer their time providing food to residents in need, planting community gardens, among other projects.
Commissioner Tim Ennis said Brooke County has a long history of people selflessly giving up their time for others.
He believes the Volunteer Recognition Program is a great way to tell show them appreciation for their work.
“Muhammad Ali once said that volunteerism and service is our rent here on Earth. I like that saying and we like to recognize people for the work that they do,” Ennis said.
If you want to nominate someone, you can pick up an application at the Courthouse
Ennis wants to remind residents they cannot nominate elected officials or family members.
Applications are due on Tuesday, April 24th.
