    Congratulations Board Member Phil Watson!

    On May 5th, Phil Watson, Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley board member and Private Wealth Advisor was honored with a highly prestigious award from Ameriprise Financial.  Phil received the 2016 Community Impact Award for his volunteer service with Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley.  Ameriprise has a long legacy of helping to strengthen communities, but it is the actions of their advisors that truly bring one of the company’s core values to life by helping those in need.  As the recipient of the 2016 Community Impact Award, Phil exemplifies what it means to respect individuals and communities by making a significant impact in the lives of others.


    Phil has been volunteering with Habitat for Humanity for 11 years in various capacities – from builder to board member.  He chooses to be involved with Habitat for Humanity because he strongly believes in the mission.  He began helping with the construction and repair of homes and in 2009, Phil joined the board of directors and served as the chairman of the board from 2010 to 2014.  He continues to build, serve on the board and has become an ambassador for the organization.  “One way I can help is by building homes. Habitat is a natural fit for me,” he said.  Receiving the 2016 Community Impact Award is not only a well-deserved tribute to Phil but Habitat for Humanity also receives a contribution in his honor.  Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley is grateful for the many ways Phil contributes to our organization, as well as the communities and people we serve.  Congratulations Phil!
