Town of Essex To Reward Good Samaritans

Thursday May 4th, 2023, 12:05pm


The Town of Essex Police Service Board has launched the 2023 Good Samaritan Award program. The program is intended to acknowledge individuals for their public service acts within the community.

Individuals are encouraged to nominate citizens who demonstrate kind gestures or random acts of kindness that improve the community or assist another community member. Examples include assisting an individual with a disability, picking up trash from public spaces such as a park, or volunteering at a local organization.

Five Award recipients, selected by the Police Service Board, will receive an official certificate signed by the Mayor as well as a cash reward of $100 each.

“Following the success of the program last year, we are thrilled to once again reward random acts of kindness through the Good Samaritan program,” said Mayor Sherry Bondy, Chair of the Essex Police Service Board. “This unique program allows us to recognize our residents for their kind gestures that enhance and support our community”.

Nominations will be accepted online at until August 25th, 2023.
