WORTHINGTON, MA – Hilltown Community Health Centers was a proud recipient of Florence Bank’s 2015 Customers’ Choice Community Grant Program. In a ceremony on March 9, Eliza Lake, Executive Director was presented with a check for $798.00 by Monica Curhan of Florence Bank. HCHC was one of fifty-seven non-profit organizations that received enough votes from bank customers to be given a grant. The money received will be put to good use by supporting the Health Outreach Program for Elders (HOPE) program by allowing us to continue the HOPE nurse who serves elders in the northern hilltowns who can’t get visiting nurse services, have a very hard time getting out of their homes, and are often very isolated. HOPE visits provide elders with needed medical care such as vital sign checks, immunizations, blood draws and medication management, along with the support that allows them to access other needed community and health programs. Thanks to everyone who voted for HCHC!
Voting is now open for 2016 and to help HCHC be one of the recipients of these much-needed funds, we are asking for your vote. Florence Bank will award $100,000 to non-profits throughout the region based on votes. If you are a customer of Florence Bank, or you have family and friends who are, you can help. Voting can be done at any Florence Bank branch or on the bank’s website, www.florencebank.com/vote and will continue through December 31st. We need at least 50 votes to be eligible. Thank you in advance for considering HCHC when you vote.
