Friends of Plymouth Pound receives grant from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation

The Friends of Plymouth Pound in Manomet was awarded $500 from the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation’s Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant program.

James McGovern, an employee of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, nominated the organization for the award. Funds will be used to purchase vaccinations, food and shelter for the rescue animals.

To commemorate those Harvard Pilgrim members who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, Harvard Pilgrim and the Foundation created the Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant program. This program allows each Harvard Pilgrim employee to award a $500 grant, completely funded by the Foundation, to the local charity of his or her choice each calendar year. Since this community grants program began in 2002, Harvard Pilgrim employees have directed more than $5.2 million to thousands of organizations throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.
