Terra Meenan, local business owner and founder of In Bloom Yoga in New Hartford, came up with a unique way of giving back to the community as a first-time Foundation donor. On Thanksgiving Day, Meenan held a special yoga practice at the In Bloom Yoga studio called “Moving with Gratitude.” Participants in the class were encouraged to give a donation in support of The Foundation’s work in place of the usual class registration fee. All proceeds from the event were generously donated by Meenan on behalf of In Bloom Yoga to The Community Foundation.
After visiting The Foundation’s website, it was clear to Meenan that she had found a fitting recipient for her event’s proceeds.
“I saw that the organization helps several different causes in the area,” she said. “I thought it would be the perfect place to donate, and I felt confident that The Foundation would know where the community is most in need of support to grow.”
