Promise Community Health Center of Sioux Center seeks nominations for this year’s Addink Community Service Award.

The deadline to submit a nomination is Sept. 21.

The award will be presented during Promise Community Health Center’s annual “An Evening of Promise” Celebration and Fundraiser on Thursday, Oct. 15, at Terrace View Event Center in Sioux Center. The honoree will be notified prior to the event and will be recognized publicly.

“Volunteers bring together communities and enrich the organization and people they serve,” said Amy Kleinhesselink, co-CEO for Promise. “Promise Community Health Center recognizes a volunteer each year with the Addink award as way to express our gratitude and honor to all those who give their time.”

The Addink Community Service Award was created in 2012 to recognize one individual, or family, who has made a positive impact on the community through volunteerism. The award is named after Ken and Barb Addink of Sioux Center in recognition of their lifetime of involvement in community activities. In particular, their volunteer service was instrumental in establishing dental services at Promise.
