The time, effort and sweat of the thousands of volunteers over the 15-year run of Trumbull County’s Make A Difference has resulted in making Trumbull County a better place to live. And now, the work has been recognized as among the best in the nation — for the third time. Media company TEGNA Inc., with its Make A Difference Day partners Points of Light and Arby’s Foundation, announced the local event, sponsored by the Tribune Chronicle, is among 13 national award winners that will receive $10,000.
Arby’s Foundation, the independent charitable arm of the restaurant chain, is providing the grant. “The announcement Trumbull County’s Make A Difference Day was going to receive $10,000 was a surprise, but it’s a welcome surprise that will be put to good use locally,” said Sue Shafer, community events coordinator for the Tribune Chronicle.
