Board 8 seeks nominations for community service award


Community Board 8 is currently accepting nominations for the Bronx Community Board 8 2013 Community Service Award, which honors the efforts of volunteers in the Riverdale-Kingsbridge area. 

The only criteria for consideration is that the nominee has to have acted on a volunteer basis to improve or enhance, in some way, the quality of life of those living or working in the Board 8 area. Nominations are open to individuals, students and organizations or groups with an interest in the community. Those who are salaried for their efforts or who perform these services as an extension of their professional responsibility are not eligible.

Entries must include the name of the person or group being nominated, contact information, including an address and phone number; a description and nature of the volunteer work for which the nominee is being considered, including its duration and the resulting impact on the community. 

All contributions to our community, big and small, will be considered. The individual or organization offering the nomination must also be identified, and a contact number must be given.

Nominations must be received by Friday, April 5, and should be addressed to Robert G. Abbott, chairperson, Community Service Award Committee, Community Board No. 8 Bronx, 5676 Riverdale Ave., Suite 100, Bronx, NY 10471.
