2017 6 Who Care Awards

Who are the most dedicated and inspiring volunteers in our community? Honor one of them by nominating him or her for 6 Who Care, an annual recognition opportunity made possible by WCSH6, TD Bank, Dead River Company, and United Way of Greater Portland. There will be six award winners this year, including the Mary Rines Thompson Award winner, a person who epitomizes the spirit of volunteerism, and the Agency of Distinction, an outstanding nonprofit agency. Winners are presented with a cash award to be donated to the charity of their choice in addition to having their story told on WCSH6 during the fall.

Note: Any adult volunteers in the WCSH6 viewing area are eligible to be nominated for a 6 Who Care Award. Adult members of the community may submit nominations. Mary Rines Thompson nominees must have completed at least five years of volunteer service. Agencies may “self-nominate” for the Agency of Distinction Award.
