2018 Spirit of Caring Nominations

Since 1992, the Crusader Community Health Foundation’s Spirit of Caring Awards have recognized caring individuals and organizations within the communities we serve. This year the annual award recognizes four individuals and one organization for their impact as caring leaders. Ideal candidates exhibit unique kindness and caring for others in our community outside of their regular employment. Spirit of Caring Awards center on the length and breadth of service these individuals and organizations bring to the community.

Spirit-of-the-Future Award
The future of our community lies within the enterprise and passion of our younger givers of time, talent and/or treasure. Nominate a person (18 -40) who exhibits unique kindness and caring for others in our community outside of their regular employment; a future leader who demonstrates the Spirit of Caring today.
