If you know a local COVID hero, Port Moody wants to hear from you.
The city is accepting nominations for its new COVID-19 community service award that recognizes an individual, community group or business that has gone above and beyond during the ongoing public health crisis to serve its neighbours in need, vulnerable groups or the community.
Winners of the award will be recognized at an upcoming council meeting and be presented with a certificate of appreciation.
Nominees, who must be a resident of Port Moody, should have demonstrated leadership, dedication, innovation and creativity during the pandemic. They could have done this by performing volunteer work that has had a positive impact in the community or by organizing or coordinating a group of volunteers that had a positive impact.
Nomination forms are available online, or can be picked up at city hall (100 Newport Dr.).
