Russo said The Harvest Foundation expects three things from the SRSC: that it be an economic driver, that it work toward being self-sustaining, and that it help provide an active, healthy lifestyle for the community. “I think we do all three,” he said, pointing to the free fitness stations, paw path for dog-walkers and the planned extension of the Dick & Willie Passage trail to the sports complex as amenities which promote healthy lifestyles.
The Harvest Foundation was established in 2002 from the sale of Memorial Hospital and is committed to honoring the legacy of the hospital by being good stewards of the foundation's assets. We believe the key to improving our community's health, educational opportunity and quality of life is a strategy focused on building and maintaining economic prosperity for the entire community. By supporting organizations and projects that drive economic growth, we will together overcome any current or future challenges facing our community.
