Soroptimist International of Centre County is seeking nominations for its 2015 Spirit Award: For Women Helping Women. This award acknowledges a woman who, through her personal or professional activities, is working to improve the lives of women and girls locally, nationally or internationally. The honoree is an ordinary woman who has worked in extraordinary ways to benefit women and girls. Examples are: spearheading an effort to open a domestic violence shelter, starting a mentoring program for at-risk girls, or enabling low income women to reenter the work force by educational, clothing and mentoring needs. The 2014 winner was Ann Gale from the Pregnancy Resource Clinic. Ann orchestrates the Abortion Recovery Program at the Clinic.
The Spirit Award: For Women Helping Women enables the Soroptimist International of Centre County Club to thank this woman and encourage others to explore ways to assist women and girls. This award is at the local club level where a monetary award is given to the recipient’s charity of choice.
Nominations forms are available at www.soroptimistcentrecounty.org or by calling 814-571-3439. Deadline for submission is January 31, 2015.
