GREENFIELD — The Hancock Regional Hospital Foundation last week gave itself 100 days to raise $100,000 for the hospital’s hospice unit, and it’s getting some harvest-time help from a local farmer.
Tyner Pond Farm of Greenfield has pledged to match the money raised by the foundation up to $100,000, and farm owners Chris and Amy Baggott said the farm’s participation in the fund raising drive falls right in line with its core values.
“Our farm’s mission has always been about supporting the local area, healthy living and the local economy,” Chris Baggott said. “We wondered how we could help the hospital, and this is a great synergy for us.”
If its total goal is met, the foundation could see its hospice endowment grow by $200,000 by the end of the campaign on Dec. 31.
