Grow gives back

Members of Grow, a Vernon-based business referral group, help stock the Vernon Salvation Army food bank’s shelves.

A local organization is getting into the holiday giving spirit.

Members of Grow, a Vernon-based business referral group, came together in December to help stock the Vernon Salvation Army food bank’s shelves with food and money.

“As local business owners, we feel very connected to our community,” said John Willis, Grow spokesperson.

“Supporting those in need is such a rewarding experience. We hope to continue this tradition for years to come.”

Grow meets every second Wednesday, at 7:15 a.m., at The Pantry in Vernon. The organization is always looking for new members to expand its group of professionals.
