Support for Community Programs
In our commitment to sustainable farming practices, Haygood Farms aims to reduce our impact on the planet, from the earth we care for to the organic practices we employ and organic plants that are the backbone of our business. That mission for sustainable farming extends to using proceeds from sales of Haygood products to support organizations and people in our community.
This spring Haygood started a monthly giveback program. Through this initiative, Haygood donates a percentage of all online sales for the month to a community organization.
In April, Marketing Coordinator Jorden Jackson connected with Chattanooga Room in the Inn, a residential program for women and children who are experiencing homelessness. This longtime Chattanooga institution provides transitional housing, access to healthcare, life skills training, parenting classes, and assistance with finding affordable housing to its residents free of charge.
“As a business local to Chattanooga, we feel it’s our responsibility to support organizations like Room in the Inn that truly benefit individuals and families in our community,” Jackson says. Room in the Inn enables women to find stability and increase their chances for independence after leaving the program.
