2020 SPIRIT OF CARING Announcements
Normally, announcements would be made at Crusader Community Health Foundation’s annual Evening of Caring event. However, this year the event has been cancelled due to COVID-19. Even though we will not have our event this year, we felt it was even more critical to recognize individuals and organizations for their impact as caring leaders. We will again celebrate how the community benefits through their length and breadth of volunteer service outside of their employment. The unusual events of 2020 have demonstrated new levels of caring in our community. All awards will be presented though a virtual platform and recognized in print.
