United Way of Wilkes to Recognize Our COVID-19 Front Line Workers

2020 Great State Hero Nomination Form

The United Way of Wilkes County has proudly hosted a Great State Hero event annually in September.  The past winners are those from our community who have contributed to lasting change, whose service has moved the needle forward in the areas of Crisis Intervention, Health Improvement, Educational Advancement, and Future Generations.

This year, the United Way wants to honor those who have responded in an exceptional way to the Coronavirus pandemic, and been on the front line, either serving those infected with the virus, or those affected by CV 19.

Please consider nominating a Great State Hero who has been making a difference during the CV 19 pandemic.
