Make a Difference Awards Date Scheduled
The Town of Hempstead has announced the date and submission process for its 14th annual "Make a Difference" Award ceremony.
The town’s Make a Difference Award Committee will select 12 of the town’s most qualified candidates -- those who help others in the community -- and present them with award medals at a special ceremony that will be held at Hempstead Town Hall on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m.
All resumes and documentation for candidates must be sent to 1 Washington St., Hempstead, NY, 11550, by Friday, Oct. 14.
Make sure that all entries on the resume can be documented. Include the names, addresses and phone numbers of presidents or leaders of referenced organizations. The town is also requesting a cover letter from the nominator telling us about the nominee and why they are being nominated.
Again, the candidate must be a Town of Hempstead resident, so please be sure to provide the nominee’s home address.
