Meet our five new community builders


On May 31, in collaboration with Apt613, we recognized five more incredible community builders.  

Louisa Taylor hosted the presentation and helped us surprise these unexpecting recipients—people who have worked tirelessly to make our communities safer, healthier, and more resilient, during a time when circumstances are still difficult and strained for many of us. From delivering hot meals to isolated seniors, to helping marginalized communities succeed in entrepreneurship—community builders are constantly showing selflessness and care during these unique times.   

These recipients are community leaders and fearless advocates who have stepped up and demonstrated a local love that has not gone unnoticed.   

Award recipients have demonstrated a strong ability to mobilize their communities, going above and beyond their regular volunteerism. They also represent the kind of quiet determination and heroism that inspires others to act—leading by example.   

We thank everyone who takes the time to nominate everyday heroes, and we thank you, community builders, for your exceptional contributions.
