North Bay Business Journal has its First North Bay GIVES Awards

Companies and individuals making a difference for others in the North Bay are being honored by the North Bay Business Journal at its first North Bay GIVES Awards.

The awards recognize a wide variety of organizations and individuals, from organizations working on specific issues, like education or housing, to those who have provided financial support for other groups addressing issues like feeding the hungry. Individuals receiving this year’s honors include people who have supported elevating the lives of the disabled, helped in insuring farming remains a viable way of life, as well as helping insure seniors have a place to live in our communities.
