Capital Area United Way – “Power of 9” - The Power of 9 Awards celebrate the spirit of volunteerism and by putting the spotlight on the diversity of volunteers in our community. The individuals, friends, community groups and corporations freely give of their time, talent and energy to help organizations meet their mission. In partnership with WAFB Channel 9 and sponsored by Capital One Bank, we support these heroes in our community by honoring one (or more) special volunteers each month, featured on a segment produced and aired by WAFB. In addition, we recognize all the Power of 9 recipients and highlight the organizations with which they volunteer at a banquet held each January. Nominate a Volunteer: Do you know a volunteer or group of volunteers that have made a difference for you and your community? Please nominate them for the Power of 9 Honors Award today. Nominations are accepted throughout the year (please see attached).  For more information contact Ashley Montagnino at
