In 2007, The Community Foundation of Lorain County and Lorain County
Community College joined forces to create a program that would honor and
celebrate local women. The Steering Committee seeks nominations for those who
go above and beyond expectations in their daily lives to demonstrate compassion
for and to inspire others, regardless of their area of work. A nomination form is
attached and is also available for download from www.PeopleWhoCare.org.
Recipients of the Women of Compassion Awards will be chosen by a steering
committee of community volunteers based on the following selection criteria:
· Must either live or work in Lorain County
· Must have made a significant impact on the lives of others
· Must have shown significant personal commitment to others
· Must have demonstrated compassion to others and inspired them to do the same
Nominations are due by Monday, June 2, 2008, at 5:00 PM.
Nominations may be mailed, faxed or hand-delivered to:
The Community Foundation of Lorain County
1865 N Ridge Rd East, Ste A
Lorain, Ohio 44055
Five awards will be given in 2008 with one award going to a Rising Star who is
under the age of 25. Recipients will be notified by phone and mail. These women
will be recognized at the First Annual Women of Compassion Luncheon to be held
on Thursday, October 16, 2008, at the Spitzer Conference Center.
