Babcock, director of marketing & communications at Portage Health Foundation. “We’ve already had some great nominations come in, and I can’t wait to read more stories of these incredible people.”

The program will celebrate one nominated volunteer each month. Volunteer nominations should be made on the Do Good website. All those recognized must volunteer in Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw or Ontonagon county. The Do Good website will also have a list of volunteer opportunities. Organizations or events looking for volunteers can submit their opportunities on the Do Good website.

In addition to PHF staff, staff from Barbara Kettle Gundlach Shelter Home, Keweenaw Area Community Foundation, Mercy EMS and Omega House are helping with Do Good.
