Arlington's CRM Wins National Award
From the Sun Gazette:
The Arlington Community Role Models Program has been named the recipient of a 2008 Acts of Caring Award from the National Association of Counties.Check out the CRM website, or better yet, plan to come meet our volunteers at the April CRM Monthly Meetup!
The award, which will be presented on April 10, represents “a great honor and a tremendous accomplishment,” County Board Chairman Walter Tejada said. Launched in 2004, the Community Role Models Program was designed to bring young adults together to make a difference in the life of the community.
Since its founding, more than 1,300 people have participated in the program, which is overseen by the Department of Human Services and the county's volunteer office.
