Linden Ponds Holds Food Drive for Island of Fogo

Hingham, MA – Linden Ponds in Hingham ran a Food Drive for people on the Island of Fogo, Cape Verde.  The Island experienced a major volcano eruption that displaced over 1500 villagers and decimated agricultural farmland. 

“We have employees who have family there or moved from there and they really wanted to do something to help them,” said Jackie Scungio, Director of Human Resources, Linden Ponds.  “Hundreds of non-perishable food items were collected from our very generous residents and employees.
