Helping With Furniture (HWF) is honoured to have won the 2016 Ottawa Social Impact Award for a Community-Initiative! More than 500 votes from the Ottawa public earned HWF a place among 10 top finalists, which were then reviewed and evaluated by an independent jury. This panel of local business and community leaders ultimately deemed HWF winner of this year’s Community-Initiative award, which recognizes organizations with lasting social impact and significant potential for growth.
“These awards highlight impressive community initiatives and social enterprises that are making a lasting social impact on our city in ways that emphasize the power of the collective rather than the individual,” said Mayor Jim Watson. “Congratulations to both the winners of this award and the nominees, whose work is making a significant difference in our city both socially and economically.”
