Finalist include: Association for Women in Science – Massachusetts Chapter; Brother Wolf Animal Rescue; Colon Cancer Alliance; Darkness to Light; Fisher House Foundation; The Foundation for New Education Initiatives, Inc.; Village Family Services; and YWCA Columbus.
Jonica Armstrong, community relations manager for DSW, said, “What’s really motivating about this program is the ability to share with our customers what our associates are passionate about. We’ve found that the organizations are not only appreciative of DSW’s financial support but also enormously grateful for the awareness that DSW associates bring to their causes.”
