We are feeling the love this week in a big way. What great enthusiasm our city has for volunteerism!
FIRST: Thank you, Nashville, for voting us “Best Nonprofit” in the 2013 Nashville Scene Readers’ Poll. We are honored to share this recognition with two great organizations, Ronald McDonald House Charities and Thistle Farms. A special thank you to the Nashville Scene and Jackson National Life Insurance for awarding us $5,000 – this money will go to support our work to meet critical community needs through volunteerism.
This city sure is proud of its culture of service, and we are truly honored to play a part in making volunteerism something that Nashvillians value. All of our good work is made possible by the remarkable gifts of time and talent provided by selfless volunteers and community partners.
LAST (but certainly not least!): We were also honored this week when our fearless leader and CEO, Brian Williams, received The Bank of America CEO of the Year Award at the 2013 Salute to Excellence awards dinner. This award highlights the importance of executive leadership in an organization’s achievement of mission-related results. Thanks to the Center for Nonprofit Management and Bank of America for this wonderful recognition!
