Today the Arkansas Department of Human Services Division of Community Service and Nonprofit Support (DCSNS) began accepting nominations for the 2015 Arkansas Volunteer Community of the Year awards. Each year, the division partners with the Governor’s Office and the Arkansas Municipal League to sponsor the awards. The nomination deadline is September 30.
Twelve communities throughout the state will receive recognition for their volunteer efforts. A committee of citizens who represent a cross-section of the state population will select winning communities. The awards will be presented at the Arkansas Municipal League Winter Conference.
Recipients of the 2014 awards were: Bay, Clarkridge, Booneville, Warren, Heber Springs, Mountain Home, Blytheville, Maumelle, Benton, Bentonville, Ft. Smith, and Fayetteville. Volunteers in these communities donated thousands of hours last year toward supporting on-going activities and needs of their fellow citizens.
