AWB picks 2013 Community Service Awards
The Association of Washington Business has recognized 11 Washington employers for their exceptional commitment to philanthropy and corporate citizenship.
“These awards highlight what we have always known: Washington businesses take their responsibility to the community seriously,” said AWB President Don Brunell. “The 11 employers we honored this year not only displayed that commitment, but they also showed that it’s possible to find new and more effective ways to give back."
Recipients include an Eastern Washington agriculture company that rallied to keep a small town from disappearing; a beef processor that helped stock the empty shelves of food banks with free meat; and a design studio that figured out a way to introduce students to the world of art.
"Need will never go away, but the ways to address it must evolve," Brunell said. "These businesses are leading the way.”
