A Grant with Fond Memories Attached

Applying for a grant is usually a laborious process, requiring pages of applications, documents, and financial statements.  Usually!  The Attleboro Land Trust recently received a $2000 grant that came to us through a different set of circumstances.

Enter Sherri Peak-Palermo, who works for Woodard & Curran, an environmental consulting firm with an office in Providence. The firm, together with its employees, has set up a foundation to support non-profit groups across the country in their efforts to protect the environment.

Sherri is the daughter-in-law of the late Paul Palermo, Sr., who passed away in 2019.  Palermo was widely-respected as the City of Attleboro’s electrical inspector, serving in that capacity for 30 years.  Sherri nominated the Attleboro Land Trust for the grant in memory of her father-in-law and in recognition of his love for the city.

Our thanks to the Woodard & Curran Foundation for this grant, and to Sherri for nominating us.  Stay tuned for more about the specific project on which these funds will be spent.
