The Start of Something New
the NEPGA Foundation is Unveiled
- Worcester, MA.
The New England PGA launched its foundation on Wednesday by making a donation to a local charity in Worcester, Mass. This marks the beginning of the New England PGA’s charitable giving campaign.
The ‘Planting the Seed’ foundation held it’s annual holiday toy drive on Wednesday. The event was held at Worcester Fitness Wednesday night. Several members from the community, along with some PGA professionals visited the event to drop off toys, games, and donations. The NEPGA Foundation presented ‘Planting the Seed’ with a $1,000 check for the toy drive.
Planting the Seed began close to 40 years ago with humble beginnings in the living room of co-founder Paul LaCava. Now, the non-profit group is dedicated to helping Worcester-area youths who are homeless or about to become homeless. Outside of the annual toy drive, the group helps to provide underprivileged children with school supplies, access to resources, and summer camp activities.
