The Deep Creek Watershed Foundation was notified that it will receive the 2021 William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award for Garrett County.
This is the 10th anniversary of the awards. This Award will be presented later this year in Garrett County by Peter Franchot, Comptroller of Maryland.
The Award goes to individuals and organizations in each of the 23 counties and Baltimore City who best exemplifies William Donald Schaefer’s lifelong commitment to helping people.
Winners are selected based on their demonstration of improving the community, swiftly solving a citizen problem through effective government intervention directly aiding the most vulnerable in society, or creating a public/private partnership to improve the lives of Marylanders.
The Foundation Board and Advisers are delighted with this notification and will plan a celebration for Comptroller Franchot’s visit to the County for the presentation.
