May 28 /CSRwire/ - Campaigns that helped students deal with grief, reduced waste in national parks and hydrated firefighters – all while building stronger businesses - were among the initiatives honored at the 18th annual Halo Awards. 

Twenty-eight category-specific winners were selected out of more than 130 entries by Engage for Good at its annual conference.

In addition, Levi Strauss & Co. and Habitat for Humanity International each received a Golden Halo Award, Engage for Good’s highest honor, for their long records of achievement at the intersection of profit and purpose.

“We’re delighted to honor these companies and causes that are working together to effectively engage consumers and employees while building business and making a social impact,” said Engage for Good President David Hessekiel.
