The Village of Rochester Hills is working to create some well-deserved recognition for some inspiring people in the community — and offer a holiday reward in the process.
Do you know someone who is making an outstanding contribution to Rochester and Rochester Hills but does not seek public acclaim for their good works?
Tell us all about that person or group here or on the Village's Facebook page; the Village is awarding $250 gift cards to the most deserving of the nominees.
This week, Dr. Jay Mitchell and Dr. Silvia Operti, founders of KidzKare, received the first of the three awards the Village is giving this holiday season.
Mitchell and Operti "started a nonprofit to help take care of needy kids in Rochester," said Kathy Campbell, who nominated them.
"This past summer KidzKare, Inc. helped to provide 397 under- and uninsured children with school physicals, along with vision, hearing and dental screenings," Campbell wrote.
They received their reward in a presentation on Monday.
So tell us, Patch readers: who among us is helping the Rochester and Rochester Hills communities?
