The Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix is now accepting applications for its 2018 Belle Latchman Community Service Award.
This award is given in memory of Belle Latchman, who was deeply involved in many important causes in both the Jewish and general communities. She was the first woman president of the Federation and chair of its Women’s Campaign. She was the recipient of many honors, including the Federation’s Medal of Honor.
The award is presented in recognition of an outstanding contribution to the enhancement of the quality of life in the Greater Phoenix area by a local non-profit Jewish organization, agency, institution, or committee. Contributions should involve innovative, constructive forms of service which perpetuate Jewish values. Programs of any size, including those done within an organization, as well as those which involve the community at large, are considered.
“Every year we are proud to present this award to honor the memory of Belle Latchman and to recognize an outstanding program which goes “above and beyond” on behalf of our community,” said Federation COO Robin Loeb. “We know there are so many impactful programs in our community and we invite our Valley’s organizations to submit their good work for recognition.”
The award will be presented at the Federation’s donor appreciation and awards brunch on Dec. 5.
Applications are due by Wednesday, Oct. 31. Application form and information are available jewishphoenix.org/latchman2018.
