The Office of Community Involvement hosts the Annual Volunteer Awards, where we honor Multnomah County's dedicated volunteers for their service. In recent years, we have honored departmental volunteers and awarded several individual achievement awards, including:
HILLTOP Awards (Heroes Inspiring Leadership, Learning, Teamwork, Opportunity and Pride), created in 2006 to honor individual and organizational efforts to address poverty in Multnomah County.
Gladys McCoy Lifetime Achievement Award, honoring the legacy of former Multnomah County Chair Gladys McCoy by recognizing someone in Multnomah County who models Ms. McCoy's ideals.
Jennifer Beegle Award for Youth Involvement, highlighting the positive impact youth have on their community. This award is given in memory of Jennifer Beegle, a former member of the Multnomah County Youth Commission.
