Each winner receives $20,000.

In an announcement on the Tom’s of Maine website, PR Manager Susan Dewhirst said of the winners:

“Organizations like these are providing critical services and building strong communities.

“We thank them for letting us play a part in their important work.”

“The national recognition that Tom’s of Maine brings to the Community Culinary School of Charlotte is commendable,” said Executive Director Ron Ahlert.

“It will help in another way, giving our students more paths to success as they partner with organizations that have partnered in the past with Tom’s of Maine.

“And of course we are flattered that, out of the dozens of nonprofits that applied from North Carolina, they felt that our program was worthy.”

Ahlert said the Tom’s donation would go to support mission-based program costs.
