Community Service Award: Nominate a local child for helping others
A Children’s Award has been added to Charleston Philanthropy Week called The Wonderific Community Service Award. Nominate kids that have helped others through a nonprofit, gone above and beyond on a school project, or worked on something independently.
Nominations will be accepted through Sunday, Oct. 14.
All finalists and their families will attend the Little Red Wagon red carpet movie premiere in Mount Pleasant on Oct. 19. This movie was filmed in Charleston in 2010 and is based on a true story about Zach Bonner, 7, who took his red wagon across the U.S. to raise money and awareness for homeless children. Zach Bonner will attend at the local premiere to meet the finalists and thank them for the amazing things they do in Charleston.
The finalists will gather at The Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry Nov. 13 during philanthropy week for an awards ceremony where the Wonderific Community Service Award winner will be announced. The winner will get three tickets to attend and be recognized at Charleston’s Giving Back Awards gala on Nov. 16.
