Illinois Governor's Volunteer Service Award Bestowed on OHU Foster Grandparents
The One Hope United Foster Grandparent program is delighted to announce that two of our program volunteers were awarded with the 2011 Illinois Governor’s Volunteer Service Award. There were 150 nominations throughout the State of Illinois and only 25 award recipients. These awards recognize individual volunteers through a statewide award program to highlight the importance of volunteerism and community service in the State of Illinois. The Mt. Vernon and Springfield, IL Foster Grandparent programs were honored that their volunteers received this meaningful award. The program volunteers were invited to bring guests to the luncheon held at the Governor’s Mansion and were then honored at the awards ceremony to follow.
Jean Dominguez, Mt. Vernon Foster Grandparent, and Beverly Bazemore, Springfield Foster Grandparent, were the deserving recipients of this award to honor their dedication and commitment to community service and serving children through the One Hope United Foster Grandparent program.
Congratulations to Jean Dominguez and Beverly Bazemore, the Mt. Vernon/Springfield Foster Grandparent program is so proud of all our volunteers’ hard work and are honored by this recognition!
