Highlights from this year’s winners include:
“For us, recognition as a Chapter of the Year is a testament to the strength and widely shared commitment to social impact shared by so many in our community,” stated the Northwestern University Chapter. While the New York City Professional Chapter said, “We take pride in being a force for good in our community and this recognition means a lot to our community and the hundreds of volunteers that offer their skills and time to make an impact.”
