Kingston Collection teams up with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plymouth, Inc.
Donations came pouring into the farmers’ market and food truck festival
Kingston, MA – The pandemic crisis has taken an immense toll on Kingston and Plymouth County’s non-profit community organizations. Yet demand for services from these organizations continues to increase while revenue-generating activities and events have been challenged due to shutdowns, safety regulations and social distancing requirements. That’s left non-profits struggling to find ways to safely engage with the community at a time when their services are needed the most.
As a proud supporter of the Plymouth County community, Kingston Collection recognized this need and hosted a farmers’ market and food truck festival to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plymouth, Inc. This event was held on October 11th and managed to generate more than $4,500 to help fund 2 homes under construction on Long Pond Road in Plymouth.
“What a wonderful community day the Kingston Collection put on and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plymouth benefited from last Sunday!! It is gratifying that this worthy collaboration could take place on such a beautiful fall day with so many people enjoying themselves and sampling the wonderful offerings from the Food Trucks! With the significant, growing need for affordable housing in our area we truly appreciate that everyone pitched in to offer support.” – Jim Middleton, Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plymouth Inc.
In 2019, Kingston Collection hosted over 106 non-profit events and partnered with 62 different community-based organizations that utilized Kingston Collection for education, awareness and/or fundraising.
“Giving back to our community is critically important and the foundation for everything we do at Kingston Collection,” said Lindsay Hurley, Director of Marketing at Kingston Collection. “Our local non-profits provide vital services to the community, particularly during these challenging times, and we are honored to provide them with a safe and accessible space to responsibly engage with the community and fulfill their missions.”
