Promise Community Health Center is excited to announce we are taking nominations for the 2020 Addink Community Service Award!
The award will be presented during Promise Community Health Center’s annual “An Evening of Promise” Celebration and Fundraiser on Thursday, Oct. 15, at Terrace View Event Center in Sioux Center. The honoree will be notified prior to the event and will be recognized publicly.
“Volunteers bring together communities and enrich the organization and people they serve,” said Amy Kleinhesselink, co-CEO for Promise. “Promise Community Health Center recognizes a volunteer each year with the Addink award as way to express our gratitude and honor to all those who give their time.”
The Addink Community Service Award was created in 2012 to recognize one individual, or family, who has made a positive impact on the community through volunteerism. The award is named after Ken and Barb Addink of Sioux Center in recognition of their lifetime of involvement in community activities. In particular, their volunteer service was instrumental in establishing dental services at Promise.
The award recognizes and honors an exceptional individual or family that makes volunteerism and community service a way of life. The award recipient exemplifies the best in volunteering – a sense of caring and responsibility for others, for the betterment of the local community and for the greater world beyond.
Specifically, the winner will be someone who:
■ Gives freely and unselfishly of their time to community activities
■ Inspires others to serve and acts as a role model
■ Has a positive impact upon the direction and success of community projects, programs or individuals
■ Improves the lives of others
Anyone can nominate a person, or family, for the award. Anyone – except for a Promise employee, current board member or immediate family member of an employee or board member – is eligible to receive the award. Nominations will remain on file for three years.
