The Peacemaker Program’s second annual Community Peacemaker Awards are in full swing with nominations being accepted from the public.
The Community Peacemaker Award Selection Committee is looking for nominees that use innovative techniques or ideas that show appreciable change in the community, people who live kind, compassionate and generous lives, according to a news release. For example, the person or organization may have established a mentoring program, created a safe place for children afterschool, established a community discussion panel to bring awareness to their neighborhood issues, planted a community garden, developed a creative fundraiser or worked in a peer program that showed improvement in bullying.
