We ’ re excited to once again partner with the Rhode Island Foundation in presenting the fifth annual Common Good Awards . This program recognizes Rhode Island businesses of all sizes that inspire philanthropy in their employees around the state , not by writing a check to a worthy cause , but by encouraging staff to go into the community and help . These companies also take it a step further , offering employees incentives including paid time off and donations to charity .
The judges were impressed by the many different projects that were submitted for consideration : “ A micro business making a big impact ,” was one comment . “ Really inspirational ,” was another . So , congratulations to the companies recognized here , and a major vote of thanks to everyone who participated . Rhode Island is a better place because of your involvement .
THE JUDGES : Arianne Corrente , vice president of communications and marketing , Rhode Island Foundation ; Sarah Francis , editor , Rhode Island Monthly ; Lisa Konicki , president , Ocean State Chamber of Commerce .
Congratulations to this year ’ s winners : RIPTA ● GREENWOOD CREDIT UNION ● FROG AND TOAD ● LOVE CULTURE
