Theresa Snow, Salvation Farms Founder/Executive Director, received the Vermont Business for Social Responsibility (VBSR) Young Changemaker Award on September 20th.
The Award is given in recognition of an individual who has led the formation of a socially responsible enterprise and uses the power of business to advance innovative solutions to society’s challenges for the good of the planet, their employees, their community, and economic growth.
Jane Campbell, VBSR Executive Director, writes that “the Awards Committee all agreed that what Theresa has accomplished certainly provides an innovative solution. It also serves as an inspiring model for other potential young change makers, and we are delighted to give her work the recognition it deserves.”
Theresa writes that “it is truly an honor to be recognized by a group of peers like VBSR and progressive of VBSR to acknowledge a leader in the not-for-profit sector with this award. I am proud to receive this award in recognition of the blood, sweat, and tears I’ve given to creating Salvation Farms. But more importantly, I am proud to receive this award in recognition of the fact that change-making work does not occur because of one person or one organization. Change happens when a collection of individuals envision and make possible a different or better future together.”
