(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The Dearborn Community Foundation, Inc., (DCF) is accepting nominations for the prestigious Heart of Gold Awards that recognize folks in the Dearborn County community who touch the hearts of others through their volunteerism and other acts of kindness.

Dearborn County residents who give of themselves unselfishly to serve others, collectively or individually, with volunteer acts above and beyond their profession are eligible to be nominated, said Fred McCarter, DCF Executive Director. Past Heart of Gold recipients are not eligible. It’s also important to note that nominations should not be submitted by family members.

“This is a great opportunity to recognize volunteers that make a difference in our community and at the same time encourage philanthropy,” McCarter said.
