Nominate an Exceptional Volunteer

Once nominated, a panel of judges representing East Bay business and philanthropic organizations helps determine which volunteers will be recognized in our December issue and with an award for outstanding service at our annual Threads of Hope ceremony. The judges consider each nominee’s length of service, hands-on involvement, and community impact to select the Threads of Hope winners. Nominate an exceptional volunteer >>
