THE SAMUEL JOSEPH PASTORELLO

HUMANITARIAN AWARD

Sam Pastorello.jpg

In September 2019, Senior Chaplain Michael Thrower established the Samuel Joseph Pastorello Humanitarian Award through the Adopt-A-Cop Nevada Prayer Protection Ministry, a dba of Community Connect, Inc., of Las Vegas, Nevada.  This annual award recognizes citizens in the community who have consistently demonstrated humanitarianism toward their fellow man.

 Chaplain Sam Pastorello was a kind, once-in-a-lifetime kind of person, a loving husband, a model father, a consummate teacher, an effective community leader, a friend to everyone, a chaplain for Messages of Faith Ministry, a member of Adopt-A-Cop Nevada and a man after God’s own heart.

 Few people achieve the reputation of being both a child of God and a great humanitarian, but Samuel Joseph Pastorello was such a man. In June 2019, Sam went to be with his Lord and Savior. 

 THE PURPOSE OF THE AWARD

 This annual award will be presented to honor the memory of Chaplain Sam and to recognize outstanding humanitarianism in the Las Vegas community.

 A humanitarian is defined as an individual who has the courage to take decisive action when it is needed; the wisdom to face aggressive challenges; the willingness to sacrifice in order to influence long-term impact for the betterment of the community and its citizens; and a spiritual foundation that draws and encourages others to seek a purpose-driven life.

 THE CRITERIA FOR THE AWARD

 Nominations for the award must be submitted in writing.  Submissions may be accompanied by no more than two letters of support from persons who are personally familiar with the humanitarian deeds of the nominee. 

 The selection committee shall consider:

  • all nominees who reside in the State of Nevada, regardless of age, race, sex, or religion;

  • the visibility of the cause or the person and their influence on the community, inspiring others in their humanitarian activities;

  • the extent to which the quality of the humanitarian effort exceeds the duties called for by an employed position;

  • the human factor in humanitarianism, the quality of the nominee’s personal involvement with those in need of assistance or support.

    November 3, 2019, at 7 pm is the deadline for submission
