The City of Chandler, Chandler Non-Profit Coalition (CNPC) and For Our City would like to honor the generous contributions of volunteers in the Chandler community.

"We would not be the great community we are without the tremendous contributions made every day by selfless volunteers," Mayor Jay Tibshraeny said. "They work to benefit others, not themselves, and shy away from recognition, but deserve our thanks and appreciation.“
Faith-based groups, non-profits, schools, businesses and any other group with volunteers are encouraged to nominate individuals for one of eight Chandler Volunteer Recognition Awards.  All volunteers with over 1,000 hours will get a lapel pin and certificate from the Mayor. Volunteers over 100 hours will get a certificate from the Mayor.

Nominate a deserving volunteer online for one of the Chandler Volunteer Recognition Awards.
