When residents volunteer in Worcester County, they are contributing to the community’s well-being as well as their own,” Human Resources Specialist Kelly Brinkley said. “Volunteers who give of their time to local nonprofits have a sense of joy and positivity in their lives whether they volunteer virtually or in-person. Volunteers are creating a stronger connection in the community. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

To highlight the outstanding services of the volunteers, the Worcester County commissioners will be presenting the award winners at their August 20 meeting.
