The Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Department of Social Services recently honored 13 individual volunteers and one group for their outstanding volunteer service. The President’s Volunteer Service Awards were presented to the following for service rendered during 2012: Larry Newark, Gold; Kamilah Brown and the MetroCASH Group, Silver; and Sheila Booker, Katelyn Bryant, Chevelle Clarke, Jeysel Garcia, Dedesmonia Garrison, Joanna Gray, Alice Humphrey, Dorothy Johnson, Brenda Jones, Jessica Salvia and Kelly Wells, Bronze.
“Given the many volunteer hours required to qualify for this award, the volunteers’ generous contributions of their time and talents are truly inspiring,” said Kathy Perun, volunteer services coordinator for Social Services.
The awards were established in 2003 by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to recognize individuals, families and groups that have demonstrated a sustained commitment to volunteering during one year.
