SterlingBridge Partners is committed to philanthropic involvement within the community where we live and work. We have led fundraising campaigns and supported programs and organizations that make a difference to the people of Worcester and people far beyond the city limits. Here are some of the local organizations we team up to support:
St. John’s Church Food for the Poor Program
A primary supporter of St. John’s Church Food for the Poor Program, Frank Carroll led the fundraising effort to build the St. Francis Xavier Center Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry to help feed hungry families and children in Worcester. The facility opened May 31, 2013 and feeds over 300 hot breakfasts five days a week or 78,000 per year, and provides “to go” food packages to over 150 families per week totaling 8,000 per year.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at UMass Memorial
Brian Carroll formed Brendan’s Buddies to raise funds for the UMass Memorial Medical Center’s newborn intensive care unit after his son, Brendan, was born prematurely and spent five months in the NICU. Since then, Brian and his team have participated in marathons and Ironman competitions have raised approximately $1.6 million for the NICU.
The Living Memorial Hospital
In the late 1960s, Frank Carroll, chairman of the Living Memorial Committee, led a group to establish a fitting tribute to the Worcester County men and women who lost their lives or were Missing in Action in Vietnam. With the support of the Gold Star families of Worcester County, Project Concern International, and the Vernon Hill American Legion Post 435 in Worcester, the Living Memorial Hospital was completed in Vietnam in 1970 to serve the children and families of the war-torn nation. It still operates today.
The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts
When the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts was in the development stage, the company provided free office and meeting space in its Main Street building for the theatre’s staff, Board of Directors and Executive Committee. A founding member of the Hanover Theatre, Frank Carroll continues to serve on its Board of Directors and Executive Committee.
