Five local groups have received awards totaling $5,500 during the Campbell Soup Foundation's 15th networking breakfast.
More than 100 community leaders attended the event which is part of Campbell Soup Company's ongoing 150th anniversary celebration.
“Campbell has been a strong community stakeholder and, moreover, a conscious corporate partner who cares for the most vulnerable living within our community," Camden Mayor Frank Moran said during his opening remarks.
"Whether it is supporting civic events or partnering with local organizations through their Healthy Communities initiative aimed at promoting healthy eating, the Camden community remains a priority. I congratulate the award recipients who embody the values which Campbell has exhibited over the past 150 years," Moran said.
The Foundation recognized four local organizations that embody Campbell’s core values; and, in honor of Campbell’s milestone 150th anniversary, also presented a special Camden Legacy Award to a community organization that has had a long-lasting impact on the community.
