Hamilton Co. Tourism Gives Back launches
For the project “Tourism Gives,” the Hamilton County Tourism staff identified nine organizations doing big things for the community. Hamilton County Tourism asked for nominations of particularly stellar volunteers – those who regularly go “above and beyond” what is asked of them. Next, Hamilton County Tourism staff put together special “staycation” packages with hotel, restaurant and attraction certificates from local tourism partners as a “thank you” for the giving these volunteers do every day. The catch? None of the volunteers had any prior knowledge of the covert giving operation. To see more of the volunteers being surprised with their gifts, visit currentincarmel.com.
Medina Daisi Olamoyegun
Trinity Free Clinic
Medina originally came the U.S. from Nigeria to study microcomputer processing in college. She first visited to the Trinity Free Clinic as a patient and received treatment when her insurance wouldn’t pay for crucial dental work. The clinic went on to help her mother, mother-in-law, uncle and aunt from Nigeria. After Medina went back to school to study nursing, she decided she would return to the clinic as a volunteer nurse.
This year, Hamilton County Tourism, Inc. has launched its Hamilton Co. Tourism Give Back campaign where it hopes to recognize volunteers across Hamilton Co. For the campaign, Hamilton County Tourism, Inc. is asking Current readers to help spread the word about the Hamilton County Tourism Gives videos that share the stories of these amazing volunteers. They are asking readers to share photos, videos and posts about the campaign on social network pages. For more, visit VisitHamiltonCounty.com.
