Grace Cottage Hospital of Townsend has been awarded the $3,000 2nd Place prize through the IMPACT Awards, which every year gives Boston Red Sox fans the opportunity to nominate their favorite non-profit organizations to receive support and funding.

Through a grant from the Ruderman Family Foundation, the winning non-profits receive first-, second- and third-place grants of $10,000, $3,000 and $2,000, respectively. Eligible organizations with the most online votes from fans were the designated winners, with three non-profits selected from each New England state.

The awards focus on organizations that have had a significant impact on raising awareness and improving mental health outcomes in their community, an issue that has become increasingly prominent and urgent nationwide amid the mental health crisis brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic and its aftermath.

Grace Cottage Hospital serves the healthcare needs of its community, promotes wellness, relieves suffering and restores health.

Jenna’s Promise, located in Johnson, received the first-place award in Vermont. It is a leading resource in Vermont helping to dramatically improve the lives of survivors of incarceration and sexual and domestic violence, including human trafficking.

The third-place winner is Green Mountain Mobile Therapy of Burlington, which provides equitable and accessible mental health and social emotional services to children and adolescents through a unique microtransit model.
