Prince William SPCA Wins 2016 Prince William Living “Giving Back Awards”

Prince William, VA: Each fall, Prince William Living, a lifestyle magazine celebrating the people and places of Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, invites its readers to submit nominations for its “Giving Back Awards.” The magazine then invites the public to vote on the nominees, and selects a winner from among the three not-for-profit organizations that receive the most votes. From dozens of entries, this year, Prince William SPCA won the top honors.

“We are blessed to have so many organizations and volunteers working to enhance the quality of life in Greater Prince William,” PWL Publisher Rebecca Barnes said. “Through this awards process, we hope to raise awareness of these good works and connect readers with volunteer opportunities. Prince William SPCA is a prime example of the difference that can be made when community members pull together for a cause.”

“Our work is with animals, so quite often we don’t receive verbal thanks like other organizations might receive for their work.” said Melissa Korzuch, president of Prince William SPCA. “Winning this award publicly recognizes our work and shows others what we are doing in the community.”

The November issue of Prince William features a profile of the Prince William SPCA as well as the two runners-up, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Inc., Quantico and American Legion Post 1799. The magazine can be found in at distribution locations throughout greater Prince William ( and online at To learn more about the work being done by through Prince William SPCA, visit
