The Goshen News is seeking nominations of individuals who are extraordinary because of their efforts to make a difference in the community. These are your friends and neighbors who go above and beyond to answer the challenge and help those who cannot help themselves. We call them Neighbors Helping Neighbors.

This August, The Goshen News will recognize individuals who make our area a better place to live, work and play in a special edition of Elkhart County Living Magazine.

Nominate you Neighbor by August 16, 2019.

Please keep in mind:
- Nominee should live within The Goshen News' four-county coverage area (Elkhart, Noble, LaGrange and Kosciusko counties).
- Nominee must be willing to participate in an interview with a reporter and have his/her photo taken.
- Nominations of Neighbor couples are OK, but individuals preferred.
Questions? Call us at 574-533-2151 ext. 395.
