Haverhill, MA – Monogram Food Solutions, Paradigm Partners and Dacon recently broke ground on a new 135,000sf manufacturing and processing facility. A manufacturer of value-added food products, Monogram will be utilizing this facility for its sandwich product lines.
To mark the event, collectively the Monogram Loves Kids Foundation, Paradigm Partners and Dacon’s Designed with Dignity philanthropy program donated $15,000 to Emmaus Incorporated. Begun as a grassroots shelter effort in the mid 1980s, Emmaus today is comprised of 15 renovated historic homes offering permanent housing, temporary shelter, food, job counseling and life skills education. These funds support Emmaus’s efforts to defeat homelessness by helping 60 families move into their own homes during the upcoming year.
Emmaus is the inaugural recipient of Dacon’s new Designed with Dignity philanthropy program, which highlights community organizations creating measurable change by matching client donations to local community projects.
States Kevin Quinn, Dacon’s CEO, “We couldn’t have asked for a more laudable community enterprise than Emmaus to launch Designed with Dignity. We believe that local organizations empower change and that positive change can transform the trajectory of a person’s life. Consistently, Emmaus has achieved this since their inception. Working at the intersection of activism, awareness and support, Designed with Dignity financially aids those brave enough to create long lasting change.”
States Jeanine Murphy, CEO of Emmaus Inc., “Emmaus is thrilled to partner with these three organizations to secure sustainable housing options for 60 families whose lives have been impacted by homelessness and poverty. We’ve learned over the past 35 years that families need stable housing, nutritious food, access to education and employment, and a solid community support network to be successful. This $15,000 investment into our organization will go a long way toward helping families fulfill their dreams for a brighter future.”
