Ever wonder where your money goes when you bid on a really that really sweet sports memorabilia through the Boston Red Sox Foundation? I’ve got your answer: the foundation recently announced their January 2021 grant recipients, and the well-rounded list of charities benefitting from all those generous donations is impressive. It touches on a number of different causes, including some you may never have heard of.
-Artists For Humanity: Provides paid employment in art & design for under-resourced teens with dreams.
–Dignity Matters: Collects and distributes feminine hygiene & personal care items, ensuring they are allocated to those with the greatest need.
–Support The Soupman: The Soupman brings not only soup to our homeless, but also provides warm clothing and everyday necessities.
Also this week: If you like Tito’s Vodka, you might be about to love them a little bit more (if that’s even possible!). This week, the well-known brand partnered with Chill Kitchen & Bar out in Marlborough, Massachusetts to donate one hundred meals to staff at UMass Memorial Marlborough Hospital. The effort was coordinated to thank the front line staff for all of their hard work throughout the pandemic.
Lastly, a community coming together has raised enough money to help cover medical expenses for AJ Quetta after the teen was seriously injured in a hockey tournament for Bishop Feehan High School. Quetta suffered a serious head injury during the January 26th game, and thanks to quick action just two days later the Greg Hill Foundation was able to put together a fundraiser to help his family through this unimaginable time. While the fundraiser had a goal of $10,000 the Greg Hill Foundation would match, they quickly surpassed that goal to provide the family with over $140,000 (as of the airing of this episode). Great giving work, guys!
