14 Aug Community Foundation Awards Three Grants in Kewanna
On August 2, 2018 the Fulton County Community Foundation (FCCF) awarded three grants to local nonprofit organizations through the Kewanna-Union Township Community Endowment Fund. The fund was established in 2010 by Kewanna H.E.A.R.T. to provide support for charitable programs and projects within the Kewanna-Union Township community.
The FCCF awarded the Kewanna-Union Twp. Public Library $500 to aid in the purchasing of a sound system and microphone to be used during events. The library has a full schedule of programs and events for the community, and the new equipment will help to provide worthwhile experiences for attendees.
The Fulton County Community Foundation awarded $600 to the Kewanna Youth League in support of the youth summer ball programs. The Kewanna Youth League had not been active for a few years but was revived this past summer. The organization is excited to continue this youth-oriented program and looks forward to future seasons!
The Kewanna Food Pantry was awarded $1,000 for a new freezer. The food pantry originally started with a few shelves in the Kewanna United Methodist Church and has grown tremendously since then. The new freezer will help meet its growing needs as its community outreach is expanded.
