SAILS Awarded Community Spirit 9/11 Mini Grant!
The SAILS Library Network has been awarded a $500 grant from the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation for the purchase of downloadable audiobooks. To commemorate those Harvard Pilgrim members who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, Harvard Pilgrim and its Foundation created the Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant program. This program enables employees from Harvard Pilgrim, Health Plans Inc. (our affiliate) and Dell Services (our IT partner) to award an annual $500 grant, completely funded by the Foundation, to the local charity of his or her choice. Since the program began in 2002, these employees have directed almost $3 million to hundreds of organizations throughout our health plan service area – comprised of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. SAILS was nominated for the award by a Middleborough resident who is an avid user of the network’s downloadable audiobook collection. These funds will be used to supplement that collection.
