Great Bay Services member volunteers have been selected to receive the Governor’s Service Award for Outstanding Volunteer Team. This is an outstanding honor for over 30 individuals who participate in the GBS Community Support Program and volunteer hundreds of hours in the community.
This honor also highlights the volunteer program offered at the GBS Community Support Program. The GBS Volunteer Program actively works to create, organize, and facilitate volunteer experiences in the community for its members. GBS members volunteer in multiple volunteer sites in the Sanford region including Meals on Wheels, York County Shelter Food Pantry, Curtis Lake Church Food Pantry, Toys for Tots, Acton Food Pantry and Moon Run Farm.
The ceremony in which GBS volunteers and others from across the state of Maine will be honored will be held April 25th at 6:00 p.m. It is expected that Governor Mills will be offering her congratulations as well.
Since 1987, the Governor’s Awards for Service and Volunteerism have celebrated and recognized the role of citizen volunteers in the success and vitality of Maine communities.
Great Bay Services is a multi-faceted organization which provides a range of services to adults with developmental disabilities. The GBS Community Support Program is a community-based service in Sanford that supports individuals in accessing the community, developing natural relationships, and participating in a variety of meaningful activities in the community.
