The Friendship Center recently received a $12,500 grant from the Farmington Bank Community Foundation, which will help us to continue feeding community members at the Tomasso Community Kitchen. The funds will go towards the ever-increasing food costs as well as small kitchen items that assist with food preparation. We constantly need to repair coffee carafes, blenders and other kitchen items.
We are extremely grateful to the Farmington Bank Community Foundation for continuing to support us and our programs.
