On November 1st, 2018 The Storefront’s very own Anne Gloger was presented with the Canadian Urban Institute’s “City Builder” Award.  Anne was out of town the day of the ceremony, so our team accepted the award on her behalf.

In CUI’s words:
“Anne receives this award for her leadership role in the creation of East Scarborough Storefront and the Centre for Connected Communities, organizations that enable and support community-identified and community-led solutions to local problems. Through a commitment to place- and asset-based approaches, Anne’s work has resulted in enduring solutions to the challenges of poverty in the East Scarborough Kingston Galloway Orton Park community as well as a revolutionary model of collective community building that can be replicated in communities around the world.” Read more at CUI’s website…

 

In Anne’s words:

“Cities are the sum of the relationships of the people who live there and Connected Communities are all about relationships. From a small grassroots community building organization in East Scarborough has grown a network of dozens of staff, hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals all turning their passions into community building and their community building into city building. I am honoured to represent these change makers as we leverage each other’s strengths to shape our City.”

Congratulations, Anne!
