COMMUNITY HERO PROGRAM IN ITS NINETEENTH YEAR: Mauch Chunk Trust Company Continues a Tradition of Honoring Area Volunteers

  • Share:
February 27, 2018
Jim Thorpe, PA – 100 area residents have been recognized as “Community Heroes” by Mauch Chunk Trust Company as part of their award program of the same name.  Since 2000, MCT has solicited peer nominations of those residents in the community who have “devoted substantial time to non-profit community organizations that benefit or improve the quality of life…”  From the nominations, at least three “heroes” have been chosen each year by an independent selection committee.  While the majority of the award recipients prefer to remain anonymous angels of the community, MCT feels strongly that their good and generous deeds should be made known to the communities they serve.  Each “hero” is honored at a public banquet and Mauch Chunk Trust Company presents each recipient with an inscribed award and a $200 donation is made in their name to the charity of their choice.
 
According to Mauch Chunk Trust Company President and CEO, Patrick H. Reilly, “Volunteers don’t often get the recognition they deserve.  We are proud to have the opportunity to honor these outstanding members of our community who selflessly donate their time and talents to help make our local community a better place to live and work.”
 
Selection Criteria:
Individual that is/has been active in non-profit/community organizations that benefit or improve the quality of life in Carbon County or the Tamaqua area on a volunteer basis and who devote a substantial amount of their personal time to those activities (scouting, sports, charities, etc.) and has made a significant impact and contribution to their community
Minimum age requirement – 25 years old
No posthumous nominations
Prior winners are not eligible
Deadline for nominations is March 31, 2018
