2022 Community Hero Award

The Westlake Village Sunrise Club is seeking nominations for its Annual Community Hero Award. Nominations are due by May 6, 2022. 

We want to recognize someone who has truly gone above and beyond during this very difficult past year to make a difference in our community. Who do you know who made an extraordinary effort to help an at-risk population during the Covid-19 Pandemic? For example, people whose immune system was compromised, elderly, children struggling with online education (e.g., lacking Internet access, struggling to learn, mental health issues), or the homeless. There are also ongoing community issues like sex trafficking, child and spousal abuse, crime victims, and more. 

If your nominee is in a paid position that sets expectations for working in at-risk environments, please help us understand how this person truly went above and beyond their “normal” responsibilities in making a difference. Your hero could be someone who put their own life on the line to save someone who was in a life and death crisis. They could be someone who saw a need, created a solution, and organized/directed the implementation.
