Kankakee, IL – Male volunteers in the City of Kankakee are set to be recognized for their contributions to the community. Mayor Wells-Armstrong will honor seven local men during her monthly Kankakee Chats livestream on Thursday, July 30, 2020. The livestream will begin at 7:30 p.m. with City of Kankakee updates.
The livestream is only open to the male volunteers and their guests. All are encouraged to watch the broadcast on Comcast local channel four, the City of Kankakee’s YouTube channel and website.
Originally, the men were going to be honored during a City Council meeting for National Volunteer Month in April. Due to the pandemic and social distancing guidelines put into place, it was postponed at a later date.
“I would like to continue to recognize those who commit themselves to bringing solutions to our community. Highlighting men during National Volunteer Month coincides with my Phenomenal Woman event I host during the month of March for Women’s History Month. I am proud to uplift our community members and though this will be an exciting livestream, I would be remiss if I did not mention that I have extended my sincere condolences to the family of Phil Hodak who passed away on May 3, 2020. Phil served in our community for many years as a firefighter and in other roles. His legacy will indeed be remembered,” said Mayor Wells-Armstrong.
The male volunteers who will be recognized are as follows:
