Since 1951, Casera has actively supported community-focused programs, events and initiatives that enhance the neighbourhoods of Transcona and south St. Vital. We know there are many dedicated individuals and nonprofit groups that work tirelessly and at times without recognition to make our community a vibrant place in which to live and work.
The annual Casera Community Awards program acknowledges the good deeds of these volunteers and organizations. Casera Community Awards helps shine a light on the day-to-day work of those involved in building better communities.
Our aim is to bring recognition to deserving community leaders and groups in Transcona and south St. Vital. We want to celebrate their endeavours and accomplishments and share their success stories with others.
There are two award categories:
- Community Leadership
The Leadership Award honours those individuals who over time have contributed to the social fabric of their community through visionary leadership or tireless volunteer work.
- Community Enrichment
The Enrichment Award celebrates nonprofit organizations that over time have made significant contributions to the well-being of the neighbourhoods in which they work.
If you know a resident of Transcona or St. Vital who passionately volunteers his or her time to such organizations as community clubs, sports teams, service clubs or church groups, then nominate them for a Casera Community Leadership Award. If you’re aware of a nonprofit organization that deserves to be honoured for their contributions, nominate them for a Casera Community Enrichment Award.
Nomination forms are available at Casera’s branches, or they can be downloaded at www.caseracu.ca. The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2020. The awards will be presented at Casera’s Annual General Meeting on April 21, 2020.
