Community celebrates volunteerism

By

Alachua County came together tonight to honor community activism. The 39th Annual Work of Hearts Awards recognized individuals and groups of volunteers for their work in business, education and 10 other categories. Haven Hospice Communications Coordinator Jenni Williams says it is important to recognize the work of local volunteers.

“This is such a great event for the community. It’s our largest event for volunteers so I know we’re going to make it big and really go all out in honoring the volunteers that are being nominated,” she says.

The Volunteer of the Year received an award named for recently deceased community activist and former University of Florida Vice President E.T. York.
