The Whitman Amateur Radio Club has been informed that it is the recipient of a $500 Harvard Pilgrim Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grant. WARC’s Elayne Tovet, KB1IKH, a Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare employee, submitted the application for the grant on behalf of the WARC.
In the letter, Laura S. Peabody, Chair, and Karen Voci, Executive Director of the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation, respectively, wrote: “The Foundation gives you this grant to support and enhance your community program. We greatly appreciate the work you do.”
The Community Spirit 9/11 Mini-Grants Program was created by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care to commemorate the first anniversary of September 11, 2001 through a special contribution to its Foundation. The Foundation administers this special fund and distributes the Mini-Grants to non-profit organizations that Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Health Plans Inc. and Dell Perot employees nominate.
WARC will use the funds to help construct an emergency communications “Go Kit.”
Congratulations to the Whitman Amateur Radio Club in securing this special funding to help further their service to the Whitman community!
