We love Rochester, MN and the surrounding communities and strive to support local businesses and nonprofits. It's even one of our core values and we prioritize giving back as much as possible
It is from these core values that we established the CWS Cares program. CWS Cares is a yearly initiative where through an application and selection process, we select local nonprofits and donate more than $50,000 in our volunteer time, marketing and web services, and financial support. We are excited to announce the 2018 recipients.
