May is National Community Action Month (NCAM) in May and SEK-CAP’s annual Day of Caring celebration is scheduled for May 4th. This kick-off event is for ALL SEK-CAP EMPLOYEES and Board Members.
A part of our celebration, we will recognize some of our important relationships, honor some of our customer’s achievements, and recognize an outstanding volunteer and organization. It is fitting during NCAM that we also take the time to celebrate the dedication and commitment of all SEK-CAP employees as we name our Spirit of SEK-CAP Award winner.
Leading up to our event, we will need to identify some of our award recipients. We are now asking for nominations for the agency awards that I will briefly describe below. Board members and staff are encouraged to submit nominations for each of the following awards:
This award recognizes an individual who strives to make a better life for themselves, their family, and their community. They will have worked closely with SEK-CAP and overcome obstacles on their road to economic security.
The ACE goes to a business or agency that has demonstrated outstanding initiative in creating and participating in community collaborations that have significantly contributed to the success of SEK-CAP and our customers.
This award honors an individual who has committed extraordinary volunteer time and energy in supporting the efforts of SEK-CAP. The recipient exemplifies the spirit of community and individual partnerships and will have made a significant contribution of volunteer service to our organization and others.
Nominations are due prior to April 13th
