“It’s incredible to see their reach. Collectively, these programs serve more thanone-third of the population. This speaks to the huge impact Nonprofits have in our communities.”

“Just this year alone over $430,000 in Community Service Grants were requested,” said Community Resource Director Danielle Collier. “There’s a huge need and although we are thankful to have given $200,000, we are actively looking for more partners to help us fund these exceptional community service programs so they can get funded for the full amount they ask for.”
