Congratulations to Willow Valley Communities resident Ross Fairweather.
Ross was in the spotlight this week as 1 of 8 recipients of WGAL’s and PCESU’s prestigious 8 Who Care Award. She was honored for her extraordinary commitment to the children of Carter & MacRae Elementary School in the School District of Lancaster.
Ross organizes Willow Valley Communities residents who volunteer by providing academic tutoring and music mentoring to students in the School District of Lancaster. This program has made a huge difference in the lives of these children as well as the Willow Valley Communities residents who serve them.
Sponsored by WGAL and PSECU, “8 Who Care” is designed to celebrate volunteerism in Central Pennsylvania. The event, held at Elizabethtown College, honored eight local volunteers who each received a $500 donation to the charity of their choice. Ross has designated Music for Everyone to receive her award. Honorees were selected from a field of publicly nominated entries representing York, Lancaster, Cumberland and Dauphin Counties.
Watch for ‘8 Who Care’ stories airing every Friday beginning November 17th on WGAL News Channel 8 Susquehanna Valley, Pa.
