WASHINGTON, Oct. 25 /CSRwire/ - Five partnerships that are tackling tough challenges need your help. BCLC’s 7th annual people’s choice “Best Partnership Award” is in full swing and only a few percentage points separate the finalists as they compete for this year’s winner slot. The finalists, each representing a leading company and nonprofit organization working together, are partnering to: aid disaster-stricken communities, fight preventable diseases in vulnerable populations, improve education though technology, empower low-income women and girls, and reverse the youth obesity epidemic.
“This year I’m impressed with the Best Partnership Award finalists’ creative solutions that stem from their core assets, whether it’s a unique product or capability, a vast network, or deep expertise about an issue,” said Catherine “Kitty” Keller, director of communications for BCLC. “I’m sure CSRwire readers will be interested in their powerful stories. Please learn about these finalists and cast a vote.”

The Best Partnership category is part of BCLC’s annual Corporate Citizenship Awards, known as the “Citizens.” Since 2000 the Citizens Awards have honored businesses for their societal solutions and for creating a sustained positive impact on people, communities, and the environment. Last year, voters selected W.W. Grainger Inc. and the American Red Cross as the Best Partnership winners. For more information about the awards and the finalists, visit BCLC’s website.
