Kolbeco Wins Communitas Award

Kolbeco Marketing Resources, a full service marketing and public relations firm, has won a 2012 Communitas Award for Frills For Furbabies, an annual donation drive benefiting Stray Rescue of St. Louis, Frills For Furbabies.

The international award, which recognizes organizations and individuals who donate their time and resources in order to benefit their communities, evaluates each nominee based on the extent and effectiveness of their program.  Frills For Furbabies, now in its fourth year, has raised nearly $20,000 in donations and supplies to benefit the non-profit, no-kill animal shelter.

“Of all the awards our team has taken home over the years, this one truly takes the cake,” said Lauren Kolbe, co-owner of Kolbeco Marketing Resources. “Frills for Furbabies is an effort that truly runs community-wide, allowing us to make an even greater impact that any of us would be able to make individually. As a team, we’re very passionate about serving animals in need, and through Frills, we’ve created a program that enriches the lives of our four-legged friends at Stray Rescue.”

The Communitas Awards are judged and presented by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, an international organization consisting of several thousand communications and marketing professionals.
