The Interfaith Service Coalition, a cooperative community outreach effort of the churches in the Hancock area, has presented its 2011 Volunteer of the Year award to the Washington County Employees' United Way Day of Caring Team.

Washington County Government has provided a United Way of Washington County Day of Caring Team to ISC for the past three years. Last October, the team constructed a storage shed, painted parking lot lines, applied exterior painting and checked electrical issues. In addition, the team did some cleaning and performed maintenance and repairs for ISC.
