TOWNSHEND, Vt. – For the second year in a row, Grace Cottage has been chosen as an IMPACT Award Finalist for Vermont by the Ruderman Family Foundation and the Red Sox Foundation.
The contest seeks to recognize organizations for their efforts to improve mental health in their communities. In an email congratulating Grace Cottage for being chosen as a finalist, the sponsoring organizations wrote, “Your nomination demonstrated a deep impact in both raising awareness and improving the outcomes in your community. We would like to thank you for the incredible work that you are doing!”
The IMPACT Awards provide Red Sox fans in the six New England states with the chance to nominate and vote for their favorite local non-profit organization. Five finalists have been chosen from each state for their opportunity to win a grant from the Red Sox Foundation.
