Nominations Sought for Virginia Volunteerism Awards

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Nominations are being accepted for the awards recognizing the efforts of Virginia volunteers.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe says nominations for the 2015 Governor's Volunteerism and Community Service Awards are due by 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 28.

Awards will be presented in categories including youth, senior and adult volunteers, faith-based organizations, families that volunteer together, community organizations, small businesses and corporations.

Officials say that Virginians, on average, contribute nearly 222 million volunteer hours annually. That's the equivalent of $5.1 billion of service. About 1.79 million Virginians volunteered last year.

Winners will be honored this spring during an awards ceremony in Richmond.
