Hannaford Supermarkets announced a new initiative for the Green Mountain State that will honor Vermont volunteers for their commitment to promoting health and wellness in the community.
The “Hannaford Health Hero” program will recognize the work of four volunteers from non-profit organizations who inspire others within the community to make healthy lifestyle choices. Two honorees from Vermont-based registered 501(c)(3) organizations will be announced each month in October and November.
Hannaford Supermarkets will donate a $250 Hannaford gift card to the non-profit on behalf of the award recipient in recognition of the organization’s commitment to health and wellness. Additionally, the individual honoree will receive a $50 Hannaford gift card.
At Hannaford, we strongly believe in promoting health and wellness within the communities we serve,” said Hannaford Supermarkets Community Relations Specialist Molly Tarleton. “I encourage non-profit organizations to shine a spotlight on outstanding volunteers by nominating them to be a Hannaford Health Hero. We look forward to hearing about the exceptional work that takes place each day in Vermont.”
Nominations should describe, in 200 words or less, how the designated individual or group of individuals inspires others to make healthy lifestyle choices while engaged in volunteer work for a non-profit organization in Vermont. They may be cited for a specific action or their overall commitment to health and wellness.
Nominations may be submitted online at www.hannafordhealthhero.com by executive directors or volunteer coordinators of registered 501(c)(3) organizations in Vermont.
Nominees are required to reside in the state of Vermont and must be 13 years of age or older. Those under 18 years of age require parental consent.
