CHP receives grant from GoodWorks Insurance

Community Health Programs recently received a $10,000 grant from GoodWorks Insurance, an independent insurance agency with offices in Great Barrington, Worcester and Connecticut.

Because CHP's administrative overhead is less than eight percent, GoodWorks' grant will go directly to help provide critical services to patients, according to CHP officials.

GoodWorks Insurance donates 50 percent of its operating profits via GoodWorks Community Grants to local nonprofits that support education, healthcare and public safety.
