Foundation Takes Flight
All Six Chapters of the NEPGA get involved with the Foundation
-New England, USA
The New England PGA's Chapters have been incredibly active in the community with the launch of the New England PGA Foundation earlier this month. All six of our Chapters have found exciting ways to get out and give back to the community.
The Massachusetts Chapter took part in showing support to the Planting The Seed Foundation in Worcester, Mass. Members Allan Belden, PGA Mark Aldrich, PGA, Shawn Durocher, PGA, and Brian Smith, PGA were at the drive to present the Foundation donation. 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. Our PGA Professionals showed support and made a generous donation at the group's annual toy drive for the holiday season.
