Star Awards 2011- Awards on TableIt’s hard to believe, but Chicago Cares’ annual volunteer appreciation gala, Cheers to Our Volunteers, is just around the corner! We will be celebrating all of our volunteers at an event in early December as well as honoring a few very special “Volunteer Stars.”

Who are these Volunteer Stars? We’re glad you asked! They are people who go above and beyond the average call of service. They work tirelessly to make our city stronger and more vibrant. They inspire others to give more of themselves, and make a powerful impact on the clients and organizations we serve. In short, they live the mission of Chicago Cares and, in turn, help to make Chicago a stronger community.

Nominations for Star Awards are due Monday, August 12. Please take time today to nominate any or all of the following:

Volunteer Star
Volunteer Leader Star
