In the Norwell Chamber of Commerce’s first year of grants, we want to thank all the organizations and businesses that participated in the process.
This first year we are awarding 2 grants totaling $3000.
- Town Dept: Norwell Police Dept – Laptop computer
- Non-profit: Cancer Support Community MA South Shore – programs
The Norwell Police Department will be purchasing a new laptop computer; it will be replacing an existing one that does not meet the requirements of new software that is in conjunction with the regionalization of the Dispatch Center. They will now be able to conduct investigations when mobile, and utilize the DVD recordable multiburner to copy surveillance video, and use it to give presentations.
Cancer Support Community MA South Shore is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing, at no cost to participants, emotional support and educational programs to people with cancer and their caregivers. Their professionally led programs have been developed to allow participants to come together in a warm, home-like environment as they learn they are not alone in their journey. Armed with relevant information, emotional support, and hope, they become able to apply a pro-active approach to their treatment and to their lives. Our grant will assist them in establishing a Breast Cancer Support Group, look for it by the end of 2011.
