Five Worcester nonprofit organizations were awarded $6,350 in grants from the Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Foundation’s Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant Program. 

“We are so fortunate to have generous and dedicated employees who enrich our company and the communities in which we all live and work. The Mini-Grant program is a wonderful way to support our employees as philanthropists and to help them make an impact in their own cities and towns,” said Karen Voci, President of the Harvard Pilgrim Foundation. 

The Worcester-area organizations that received Mini-Grants were:

  • Friends of Worcester Senior Center ($500)
  • MA 4 District Senior Softball ($500)
  • Our Lady of Providence Parish Food Pantry ($1,100)
  • Saint John’s Food for the Poor ($2,750)
  • Salisbury Singers, Inc. ($1,500)

 

The Grant Program 

The Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Foundation’s Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant Program commemorates those Harvard Pilgrim members who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. 

In 2016, more than 96% of Harvard Pilgrim employees participated in at least one form of service or giving through volunteering, the Mini-Grants program, or Harvard Pilgrim’s annual Employee Fundraising Campaign.
