Recognizing COVID Community Champions
Windsor Mayor Launches new Recognition Initiative
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers from across the city of Windsor have stepped up in unique ways to support one another. In response to the care and compassion elicited by residents during the pandemic, Mayor Drew Dilkens is launching an online nomination portal, asking residents to help identify worthy local individuals and groups for recognition as COVID Community Champions.
“This is our chance to express our gratitude for those little acts that have made a big impact,” said Mayor Dilkens. “Perhaps it’s a neighborhood network to check up on seniors, an artist finding unique ways to spread creative works, a faith community helping to deliver groceries, or a young person helping others connect online – I’ve been impressed with the volunteerism that our community has experienced.”
Residents are encouraged to visit the online nomination page to submit the name of the group or individual being nominated along with a brief description of why the nominee deserves recognition as a COVID Community Champion.
Nominees must be a group or individual operating within Windsor in response to the pandemic.
Champions will be contacted and recognized in various ways by Mayor Dilkens over the coming months.
The nomination form can be found at MayorDrewDilkens.ca and will remain open for the foreseeable future.
