GBS Supports Planting the Seed Foundation
Worcester’s Planting the Seed Foundation is a 100% volunteer, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to improving the lives of homeless children and their families in Worcester, Massachusetts and surrounding towns. Each year, Planting the Seed Foundation is blessed with the support of thousands of Worcester’s most dedicated and caring citizens.
Group Benefits Strategies Owner and President Kate Sharry has served on the Board of Directors for the Planting the Seed Foundation for several years and counts the small, grass roots organization as one the firm’s most satisfying charitable relationships.
“Planting the Seed Foundation has been an important part of the GBS culture for many years due to that fact that every dollar and every single donation goes directly to a family in need.” Ms. Sharry explains, “We are proud to be affiliated with this incredible organization and to be part of the direct impact PTS has on children and families.”
Right now, Planting the Seed Foundation is in the middle of its annual school supply drive. Each year PTS sets up giant donation boxes in area businesses where clients and customers can deposit school supplies for children in need. The organization has helped make learning an easier proposition buy making sure every child that needs basic school supplies can have them.
The Planting the Seed Foundation web site says of the event, “Through August we will be collecting school supplies and filling back packs to help these children get the supplies needed to go back to school. There will be donation boxes throughout the whole city at local businesses, including in each of our Worcester fire stations. Any and all school supply donations would be greatly appreciated. Bins will be picked up the week of August 20th.”
GBS encourages all of our friends to help make this the biggest school supply drive ever! Please check out all of the donation locations at the link below.
