Community Foundation to Honor Nonprofit “Hero” Volunteers in Virtual Celebration Feb. 5th

The Community Foundation of the Florida Keys (CFFK) will honor the incredible efforts of volunteers from more than 80 Keys nonprofits at its 21st annual Unsung Heroes celebration on February 5th at noon. Everyone can join in this year’s party, which will be a free virtual celebration livestreamed on Facebook and at No reservations are necessary.

In addition to shining the spotlight on our community’s volunteers of the year, nominated by nonprofit organizations throughout the Keys, the virtual event will feature several special guests, including a national presenter sharing the surprising reasons why giving is good for people.

The Unsung Heroes celebration is sponsored by the Lower Keys Medical Center and promotes civic engagement in the Keys.

David Clay, CEO of Lower Keys Medical Center, said, “The not-for-profit organizations and their volunteers being recognized are so vital to the health and well-being of our communities, providing food, shelter, financial assistance and health and human services to our residents in need. The Unsung Heroes event is our chance to celebrate the giving nature of the Keys and the people who work tirelessly to help their neighbors.”

Nearly 1,400 volunteers have been recognized since the event was started 21 years ago. Keys volunteers donate their time and services to our community, including cleaning up beaches, supplying food to children and families in need, fostering animals, mentoring students, assisting at homeless shelters, and much more.
