ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

Even while working three jobs, Martin Omerichamoi finds the time to give back to the community. He's one of KTTC and United Way of Olmsted County's 10 Who Make a Difference award recipients.

Omerichamoi does all kinds of volunteer work, from being a translator for U.N. refugees, to working at the Boys and Girls Club.

He credits his parents for instilling the belief in giving back and says he tries to do the same with his children. 

Omerichamoi works with people of all ages and says he loves being part of the community. 

"I like always being the person in the community who is involved in a lot of stuff as you can maybe see by my clothes and my work and I work three jobs.  
I want to encourage others... I'm there to say, let others get involved in the community no matter who you are, even if it's one hour, 30 minutes, do it."

Omerichamoi will be recognized, along with the other 10 Who Make a Difference award recipients on Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. in Slatterly Park.
