Governors Award for Outstanding Community Service 2015: Zakat Foundation Rescue Rangers
Nominator: Barbara Hashem
The Zakat Foundation Rescue Rangers' mission is "to inspire others to take action and make a difference." And make a difference they have. This group of 7- to 12-year-olds has worked to help those in countries affected by disasters through bake sales, selling jewelry, and holding special events. Abroad they raised thousands of dollars for those affected by Typhoon Yolanda, and at home, they helped with the Delaware Food Bank and Delaware Watershed.
