Watch Channel 6, WCSH!
5 Outstanding Maine volunteers and 1 agency of distinction have been chosen as the 2019 6 Who Care award recipients.
Author: Kimberly Charland
Our Agency of Distinction is Literacy Volunteers – Waterville Area. For the past 45 years, Literacy Volunteers – Waterville Area has provided free, confidential, one-on-one literacy instruction to adults. By working with adults who have never learned to read, those where English is a second language and teaching parents how to help with their child’s reading skills, Literacy Volunteers – Waterville Area is helping to create successful families.
6 Who Care is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to honor volunteers and agencies making a difference in our community. These volunteers could be neighbors or friends of yours. They build, they teach, and they inspire. They are people that go about their day never expecting a thank you for the things they do.
NEWS CENTER Maine partners with United Way of Greater Portland and our sponsors, TD Bank and Dead River Company, to honor the volunteers who see a need in our communities and fill it with care and dedication.
This is the 20th anniversary of 6 Who Care. 140 winners have been able to allocate their grant winnings to local nonprofits throughout Maine.
