Community Champions

Congratulations to our Community Champions!

Because community service is The MENTOR Network’s way of life, The Foundation created the Community Champions program to recognize our employees who devote extraordinary amounts of their time and energy to local charities. Champions receive recognition throughout The Network and their chosen nonprofit receives a grant of $500.00. Community Champions may be nominated by colleagues and supervisors and are announced on a quarterly basis.
