“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.
You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.
You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve….
You don’t have to know the second theory
of thermodynamics in physics to serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
As we prepare for this year’s Star Awards, we need your help in identifying outstanding volunteers who deserve special recognition for their service to the city of Chicago. As you consider the Chicago Cares volunteers and leaders that you’ve encountered, ask yourself these questions:
- Does s/he show a deep commitment to the ethic of volunteerism?
- Does s/he get others excited about the task at hand?
- Does s/he make you want to come back and serve again?
If you answered yes to these questions, please consider submitting a nomination for our Star Awards. We have separate nomination forms for volunteers, leaders and leader teams. Filling out the nomination form will only take a few minutes and will be a tremendous help to us as we seek out the best of the best at Chicago Cares!
