Stone Soup Reopens Community Center

Stone_Soup_group_plasteringStone Soup, a coalition of artists and grassroots activists in Worcester, Massachusetts, has completed the rehab of the community center they cooperatively own and repaid the loan provided by Equity Trust to finance the final phase of that project. The center serves as a gathering space and home base for nonprofit groups working with immigrants, prisoners, environmental justice issues, and bicycle advocacy, among others, as well an art studio and gallery.

Completion of the rehab project, which was accomplished with union, apprentice, and volunteer labor, enabled Stone Soup to access other sources of funding and pay off the loan from Equity Trust. Equity Trust is proud to have been able to participate in a community-wide effort to reopen the center and wishes the hard-working people of Stone Soup every success in the future.
