Each finalist has secured a $2,500 donation for a nonprofit of his or her choice, and finalists are now competing for an additional $7,500 in an online voting contest.
You can see a video describing Fields’ volunteer efforts and cast a vote for his nonprofit of choice, the Friends of Green Spring Gardens (FROGS), on the Cox Conserve Heroes website. The voting period is open through 5 p.m. on June 18. The winner will be announced June 25.
Fields has been an active member of the FROGS board for nearly a decade. He has been a key player in creating community connections and strengthening the organization’s long-term financial sustainability. He volunteers weekly to teach students visiting Green Spring Gardens and also trains other volunteers to expand the program’s reach.
If Fields wins this award, the funding will be used to bring an additional 2,800 lower-income schoolchildren to educational programs at Green Spring Gardens.
