Health provider gives small boost to ORR meals program

May 14, 2020

The Old Rochester Regional School District has received $500 from the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation mini-grant program for its coronavirus meals program. 

Mary Ellen Conlon, an employee of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care nominated the school for the award, which is meant to honor Harvard Pilgrim members who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. The program allows each Harvard Pilgrim employee to award a $500 grant from the Foundation, to a local charity of his or her choice each calendar year.

In 2019, 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.
