RIVERSIDE, Calif. – The City of Riverside Human Relations Commission will honor residents whose outstanding volunteer service has benefited the community at the Riverside Heroes Awards.
In 2013, nine outstanding Riversiders were honored with a Heroes award for impacting Riverside in a variety of ways.
“The Riverside Heroes represent our community’s social capital,” Mayor Rusty Bailey said. “They have given selflessly of their time for the well-being of the community. By their efforts, they have enhanced and enriched Riverside. They are why Riverside is the best place to live, work, study, play and raise a family.
Nominees for the award must be Riverside residents of any age whose volunteer activities have been
performed in the City of Riverside and within the last year. The service work on which nominations
are based must have been performed on a volunteer basis, without pay, and the volunteer activities
must have benefited the community in some way. No elected officials, groups, or organizations may be
nominated and self-nominations are ineligible for consideration.
