Volunteers recognized in Champaign, Logan, Marion counties

Volunteers recognized for awards

LifeCare Alliance recognized the 2017 Spirit Award Volunteers in Champaign, Logan, and Marion counties in April.

Each year, LifeCare Alliance conducts a series of Spirit Award ceremonies to recognize outstanding volunteers for their service and dedication to homebound older adults and medically challenged and disabled neighbors in our communities.

The Spirit Award presentation is a time to celebrate and recognize the dedication, commitment, and achievements of volunteers who give their time to our older adult citizens so they can remain independent in their homes.  The 2017 Spirit Award recipients are:
