Delaware Electric Cooperative - 'Who Powers You' Winners
Each year, WBOC honors local people who make a difference on Delmarva with the Jefferson Awards.
A similar national program also honors unsung heroes making a difference in our communities. It’s called “Who Powers You.” This year, two of the four National winners are from Delmarva. Both winners have been featured on DelmarvaLife before.
Mary Rio is the founder of a group called Clothing Our Kids. The group provides essential school clothing for children who live below the poverty level. Chase Marvil of Greenwood, Del. created The Inspiring Project. The project is all about using social media to reach out, inspire, and encourage kids, in an effort to eliminate suicide and bullying.
Mary and Chase join us in Historic Studio D to talk about being winners in the National contest and what it means to them to give back to the community.
Bill Andrew with Delaware Electric Cooperative joins us as well to congratulate the winners. Bill then presents Mary and Chase with checks to help their group and project as a way to say thank you for giving back to the community.
“We want to say thanks. Keep up the good work and keep doing what you’re doing,” Bill says. “We’re proud of you.”
