Castlegar seeks nominations for annual Good Samaritan award

Winner will receive a donation to the local charity of their choice

If you know a Castlegar resident who goes above and beyond to help their fellow citizens, the deadline for nominating them for the city’s Good Samaritan Award is fast approaching.

The annual award recognizes residents that have performed a kind gesture or random act of kindness that improves the community’s appearance or assists another resident.

“The Good Samaritan Award will acknowledge individuals who perform public service acts in the community that often go unnoticed or without thanks or payment,” according to the city.

Nominations should include an explanation as to why the person is being nominated, your name and phone number, along with the name, address and phone number of the nominee.

The deadline is Nov. 30.

All qualified nominees will be entered into a draw for a $250 donation to the winner’s local charity of choice. The winner’s name will also be added to the Good Samaritan bench at city hall.

Nominations can be sent by letter to city hall or by email to goodsamaritan@castlegar.ca.
