ROCKVILLE, Md. (DATE) – Interfaith Works (IW) is proud to announce the Park Potomac Master Association, a long-time supporter of Interfaith Works, is the recipient of the “Charitable Community of the Year” award from the Washington Metropolitan Chapter of the Community Association Institute. The “Charitable Community of the Year” award is presented to the community association that best demonstrates outstanding service to the community in charitable works and community service.
