The Portage Health Foundation enjoys recognizing the amazing work done by volunteers throughout the Copper Country. The foundation is introducing a new recognition program, Do Good in the Copper Country. The program plans to feature a volunteer from any organization in the region, each month. Portage Health Foundation knows that much of the community’s success would not be possible without the incredible people who donate their time and energy. Do Good in the Copper Country will highlight the volunteer efforts made by individuals throughout Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw and Ontonagon counties. Winners each month will be chosen by a panel made up of five leaders with various Copper Country organizations. Portage Health Foundation’s Michael Babcock and Adam Campbell-Olszewski, are joined by; Mary Niemela, Barbara Kettle Gundlach Shelter Home, Robin Meneguzzo, Keweenaw Area Community Foundation, Michael Lutz, Omega House, Pat Boberg, Mercy EMS. If you know someone that deserves some special recognition, send PHF a nomination through the Do Good website, dogoodcc.org.
