The Hopkinton-based Mental Health Collaborative is one of five Massachusetts organizations nominated for a 2020 Red Sox Impact Award, which is presented to a nonprofit for its impact in the community.
The organization that receives the most online votes by June 22 will receive a $10,000 donation from the Ruderman Family Foundation. The runner-up will receive a $2,500 donation.
The Mental Health Collaborative provides programs to teach mental health literacy and empowers communities through awareness and education.
“We are all on the front lines right now when it comes to the mental health of our family, friends, neighbors and community members,” Mental Health Collaborative executive director Abby Rosenberg said. “If Mental Health Collaborative were to win this generous grant from the Red Sox Foundation it would enable us to impact the lives of more youth and community members through mental health education and decreasing stigma.”
The other organizations nominated are Doc Wayne Youth Services, Let’s Empower Advocate and Do, KyleCares and the Home for Little Wanderers.
