Madison Foley, a student at the Middle School of Plainville, has been selected to receive the United Way of West Central Connecticut’s “Youth Live United Award.”
Each year during the United Way of West Central Connecticut’s Community Builders’ Reception, companies and individuals who give back to the community through the United Way are honored.
This year, United Way created the “Youth Live United Award,” which recognizes middle and high school students who have given back to their community through volunteerism. One young person from each of the United Way of West Central Connecticut communities (Bristol, Burlington, Plainville and Plymouth) was selected.
Foley was nominated by Plainville Kids in the Middle coordinator Amy Kievit for her commitment to the Kids in the Middle program.
Foley attended 46 volunteer events last year, has volunteered with children and the elderly, and has assisted at holiday fairs and at Shepard Meadows Therapeutic Riding Center.
Foley had perfect attendance in monthly trips to a local senior center. Also, she won the “KIM Member of the Year” award.
Foley is scheduled to be honored at the United Way of West Central Connecticut’s Community Builders’ Reception on April 5.
