TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services has announced a volunteer recognition program that will reward state residents for their good deeds.
Department secretary Shawn Sullivan says the Volunteer of the Month program will begin in January, with winners chosen from nominations submitted to the department.
Each monthly winner will receive a check for $50 and a $20 Walgreens gift card.
Nominees will be judged on several criteria, including outstanding performance, high level of willingness to help others, strong commitment to volunteering and good relationships with those who are helped by the volunteer.
Nominations can be made on the agency’s website or by going to the New England building at 5th Street and Kansas Avenue in Topeka for nomination forms.
