Dear Friends,

We are calling on you to help us identify nominees for the 2019 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Award. Many outstanding citizens of Asheville and surrounding areas have contributed to our community through their leadership skills and compassion. The annual award is an opportunity to acknowledge their work and honor them as role models in our civic life.

The 2019 King Award winner will be honored during the Candlelight Service at Central United Methodist Church on Church St. on Monday, Jan. 21, 2019. All nominees and the 2019 award winner will be recognized at the 38th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Prayer Breakfast at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, January 19, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Asheville.
