Nominees sought for Good Samaritan award

Published: Saturday, May 25, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Annually the Board of Trustees of Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center recognizes and honors an individual in the community as a modern-day Good Samaritan. This award is presented to someone who has demonstrated his or her commitment to the community and to its people in any number of ways.

A modern Good Samaritan is a person who cares for others beyond the normal compassion of most people; a person who actively participates in various community organizations and combines community service with personal caring; or a person who works quietly to better the lives of others.

These criteria are simply a guide and are not all-inclusive. Nominees should come from the community-at-large and do not necessarily have to have an association with Oak Crest. To nominate a person for the Good Samaritan Award, request a nomination form by calling 815-756-8461 or email lhoppenworth@oakcrestdekalb.org.

Nominations must be returned by June 17 to: Community Relations Committee, Oak Crest-DeKalb Area Retirement Center, 2944 Greenwood Acres Drive, DeKalb, IL, 60115. Include your name and phone number.
