The Driven Foundation works with 11 Ohio school districts mentoring students, providing coats and meals, conducting a youth football camp, collecting donated suits and ties for youngsters, and more. Since 2008, the foundation has distributed more than 750,000 pounds of free food to more than 6,400 families.


Annual awards honor outstanding service by an organization and “unsung” individuals who help others in Northeast Ohio.
