A local organization, Interfaith Social Services, has decided to honor her contributions to the region by selecting Ally Donnelly as their Community Hero of the Year. Each year at their Feed the Hungry Gala Interfaith presents the award to an individual who inspires others through selfless service.
“Ally’s passionate investigative reporting and dedication to serving South Shore residents in need made her an obvious choice for the Community Hero of the Year award,” said Interfaith’s executive director Rick Doane. “As a reporter, Ally covers issues and stories about people who are struggling, or who can’t speak for themselves.
Outside of her office hours, Ally chairs Interfaith’s Feed the Hungry Gala Committee. She has participated in the Pan-Mass Challenge in honor of children struggling with cancer.
She engages local businesses to join her in supporting families in need. Ally organizes clothing and Halloween costume drives for local children, prepares bake sales and participates in Walkathons. She embodies Interfaith’s motto of “neighbors helping neighbors. We are lucky to have someone as dedicated as Ally living here in our community.”
In 2013, South Shore Living profiled Ally as one of the most influential women in the South Shore region. Ally Donnelly has been a part of the NECN team for over 10 years.
She has won three local Emmy Awards, two regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, and two Gabriel Awards in her career as a journalist, along with two Associated Press awards and a Freddie Award. During this time, she wrote and produced NECN’s award-winning documentary “The Long Journey Home.”
