The JoAnn Dutton Volunteer Community Service Award celebrates and honors women who devote a significant amount of time and energy in a meaningful way to local charitable organizations which makes our community a better place to live.

The award is sponsored by the Women's Fund of the Richland County Foundation and was named in honor of JoAnn Dutton, former executive director of the Mansfield YWCA.
