North Grafton, MA – Retaining its uncompromising commitment to the work of the Community Harvest Project, Homefield Credit Union has donated $5,000.00 to the non-profit in a yearlong sponsorship.
The Community Harvest Project has proven to be an essential farm effort to aid individuals and families in need in Worcester County, providing them with healthy, farm-grown fruits and vegetables that help provide healthier lifestyles. And the Project does so in a unique way – literally thousands of community volunteers come together each year to grow, harvest and distribute the produce, making the effort both extremely efficient and a testament to the true sense of community.
According to Karl J. Mosian, President & CEO of Homefield, the work of the Community Harvest Project is close to the heart of the Credit Union. “We are so proud to continue our participation in the Project. Not only in terms of the funds donated, but also in the active involvement of a number of our employees who volunteer their time and hard work to the farm. We participate on all levels in one of the most important and beneficial local community projects.”
In 2017, the Community Harvest Project donated 271,509 pounds of food and at the same time, educated almost 1,600 students through their educational component. With the support of Homefield Credit Union, 2018 should also be a year of bounty for those in need in Worcester County.
