Individuals that volunteer with a nonprofit, private or government volunteer program are eligible to be nominated.

“Every day, volunteers on Maui, Moloka‘i and Lāna‘i make a positive impact that is impossible to measure,” said Wendy Stebbins, County of Maui Volunteer Center Coordinator. “Everyone who volunteers their time to help our community is a hero, and the Volunteer Hero Celebration of Service event is the perfect opportunity to assist organizations in showing their sincere gratitude to the individuals whose dedication and commitment truly make a difference in the lives of others.”

The Volunteer Hero Celebration of Service will be held Friday, Oct. 27, 2017 from 9 – 10:30 a.m. at the Mayor’s Conference Room on the 9th Floor of the County Building. The event, which recognizes volunteers who have made a great impact in Maui County, is held in conjunction with National “Make a Difference Day.”

One application per organization will be accepted. All Volunteer Hero nominees will be recognized with a County of Maui Volunteer Hero T-shirt, a certificate of appreciation and a floral lei.


All nominees and their nominator agencies are welcome to attend the event; light refreshments will be provided.
