A BIG shout-out to our volunteers, who received the 2018 Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Awards on Oct. 24 at the Dover Downs Hotel.

"Each day across our state, thousands of volunteers come together with the common purpose to make a difference in the lives of the people they serve,” Governor John Carney said. “Those volunteers don’t ask for anything in return, because they know in helping others, they enhance their own lives. We appreciate all those who volunteer their time and talents in Delaware."

MERR is honored for the award and knows that it is because of the dedication, hard work and efforts of all its volunteers that this award is well deserved!
