Darn Good Yarn, a small business based in Sebec, Maine, has been named the grand prize winner. The business will receive a $25,000 grant to invest in and further grow its business.
“This grant from FedEx will allow me to hire more women in Nepal and India, giving them independence and a means to support their families while also providing Darn Good Yarn with more product to sell,” said Nicole Snow, owner and founder of Darn Good Yarn. “FedEx has provided a way for me to further follow my dream of running a successful small business while doing good in the global community.”
FedEx also awarded grants of $5,000 each to five other small businesses.
