The Wawa Foundation Hero Award
What does it mean to be a hero to our communities? The Wawa Foundation Hero Award honors a non-profit organization that is committed to serving the greater Philadelphia area by assisting others and building stronger communities through preserving our independence, protecting our safety, and educating and inspiring our youth.
The Award will be presented on July 4th as part of the Independence Day Morning Ceremony in Philadelphia, during Wawa Welcome America! One Philadelphia-area non-profit organization will receive The Wawa Foundation Hero Award and a $50,000 grant, and three runners-up will receive a $10,000 grant.
