Westborough – Members of HYPE9, the young professionals group of the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce, held a “can” collection at their March 29 “Brew Before Nine” networking event at Tatnuck Bookseller. 175 food items, which will be donated to the Worcester County Food Bank, were collected.

In October, HYPE9 members spent the day at Roche Brothers in Westborough and collected 908 food items for local food pantries.

Part of HYPE9’s mission is to support and participate in community services projects.  HYPE9 invites more young professionals between the ages of 21-40 years old to become active with its group for community service, mentoring and leadership opportunities.  For more information, contact Lauren Hazirjian at the Corridor Nine office at 508-836-4444 or visit the HYPE9 Facebook page.
