Every year, the McAllen Chamber of Commerce selects two volunteers to be McAllen’s Man and Woman of the Year. Nominations are now being accepted with a deadline for submission of Sept. 30.
“Our community is currently going through a time where we must do things differently,” reads a release from the chamber. “But we do not want the people who have continued to make McAllen their priority and have made sacrifices to ensure our community stays safe and our economy survives to go unnoticed, especially now.”
The chamber is seeking nominations of commendable people to receive this recognition. Nominations can include recognitions for acts of exceptional kindness and tireless energy. Other examples include someone who has organized a program for the betterment of the community or given their time and talent to teach. Nominees can be also those who lend a helping hand to those in need, or just make the special effort to ensure that “good things happen” for others.
For more information or a nominee application, contact Gerry Garcia at the McAllen Chamber at 682-2871 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are also available at the chamber, 1200 Ash Ave.
