Rawlson King named United Way Community Builder

​Rawlson King, a community leader and advocate in the Overbrook neighbourhood, was named a United Way Ottawa Community Builder Award recipient during National Volunteer Week. He was surprised with an award on Saturday, April 21 at the Overbrook Community Centre during the community's annual pancake breakfast by presenter Stefan Keyes.

Rawlson is President of the Overbrook Community Association, and led the organization when it organized and fund raised a successful community musical project last year that brought together 60 cast members and more than 120 volunteers to entertain nearly 800 people. 

Rawlson is also a volunteer Board member and Treasurer at the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre, a Past President of Gallery 101 and a volunteer Board member at Proactive Education for All Children’s Enrichment, which manages an after-school program at the Overbrook Community Centre—to name a few of his many volunteer positions.
