PORTLAND — The Maine Volunteer Lawyers Project will present the first Minott Crowley Award on Wednesday to Margaret Minott and Tim Crowley, for their commitment as volunteers to helping low-income Mainers.

The award will be presented during the agency’s annual volunteer reception, at 5 p.m. at the Mariners Church.

According to a media release issued by the Volunteer Lawyers Project, the award was created “to honor two extraordinary volunteers who have dedicated a significant amount of their time, skill and compassion to providing access to justice over the past 20 years.”

Crowley, a graduate of Harvard University and a veteran of the Korean War, began volunteering with the Volunteer Lawyers Project after retiring from a career in the insurance industry.

Minott began her work as a volunteer after retiring from the Portland School District. She is a graduate of Westbrook College and Northeastern Business College, and has also worked for the U.S. Navy and Maine Central Railroad.
