Deadline nearing for Volunteer of the Year nominations

Deadline nearing for Volunteer of the Year nominations

Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh invites organizations to participate in the annual, communitywide Volunteer of the Year program. Nominations are due by June 22 and can be submitted at

The Volunteer of the Year program celebrates the work of outstanding volunteers and acknowledges the central role of volunteer organizations in strengthening the Pittsburgh Jewish community. In recognition of the volunteers’ accomplishments, an ad will be published in the Chronicle featuring the name of each organization’s volunteer. The volunteers will be publicly acknowledged at the federation’s annual meeting Wednesday, Oct. 10.

Your Volunteer of the Year should meet the following criteria: has devoted significant time over the years to your agency or organization; served in a variety of capacities within your agency or organization; and demonstrated a commitment to the community by contributing to the federation’s 2012 Centennial Year Annual Campaign.

Nominations are limited to one volunteer – or two individuals only if they have volunteered extensively together as a pair.

Contact Marilyn Navish-McCullough at 412-992-5251 or for more information.
