Know a Special Volunteer?

Nominate a volunteer who has made a difference! The Spirit of the Seacoast Volunteer Awards seek to recognize the spirit that is community. The award is made possible by Federal Savings Bank's partnership with the United Way of the Greater Seacoast.

Nominees must be volunteers living or volunteering in Rockingham or Strafford, NH counties, Eliot or Kittery, ME (within the United Way of the Greater Seacoast service area). Volunteers may be nominated in three categories: Youth (under 19), Adult (19 and older), and Group. All must have contributed to someone's life or to the improvement of his, her, or their community through volunteerism.

The recipient will be acknowledged with an award from the United Way of the Greater Seacoast, $500 from Federal Savings Bank to be given to the Greater Seacoast charity of the recipient's choice, and special recognition in the media.

Nominations may be submitted year round and will be reviewed by a panel of community leaders and volunteers. Recipients will be announced in September, December, March, and June. Nomination forms are available in the branch lobbies of Federal Savings Bank. If you would like to have an application mailed to you, contact Kelly Glennon.
