Blue Cross Foundation seeks nominations for outstanding service to kids

BATON ROUGE – The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation is seeking nominations for the 2018 Angel Award® through Friday, April 13.

Now in its 24th year, The Angel Award® program recognizes Louisiana volunteers who perform extraordinary work for children in need. The Foundation will make a $20,000 grant to the Louisiana-based charity represented by each honoree.

According to Foundation President Michael Tipton, the Angel Award isn’t tied to wealth or prestige – but true acts of service for Louisiana’s kids. “It’s not whether they have a big title or a lot of money – the Angels we’re looking for are everyday people doing extraordinary good, who show determination to change the lives of children.”

Indeed, previous Angel Award honorees represent all vocations and include retirees, students and everything in between. Each was chosen for one reason: their impact on the lives of Louisiana’s kids through devotion.

If you know an Angel, you can find more information – including rules and guidelines –and a nomination form online at www.bcbslafoundation.org/nominate
