Each year the Wayne County Community Foundation, in conjunction with the Wooster Area Chamber of Commerce and the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce, honors two local non-profit organizations that make a significant impact in their local communities.
The WorthyWorks Award is made on the basis of an organization's commitment to the quality of life, social conscience and betterment of the community, and it includes a $1,000 contribution from the WCCF to support the continuing efforts of the organization.
