February and March Grants Awarded
The Decatur County Community Foundation was pleased to present a handful of grants in February and March.
Small grants ($1,500 or less) were awarded to Advocates for Children to provide enrichment activities for abused and neglected children in Decatur County. Those activities will involve sports, music, and art. North Decatur High School Guidance office will receive money to produce scheduling guides, and Tree County players will purchase Young Adult Book Trailers with their small grant.
A Recovery and Prevention Grant was awarded to Speranza House to purchase 4 bunk bed sets. Speranza House is a sober living home for Decatur County women, making them one of a handful of agencies in the county working on recovery/prevention strategies.
Two sustainability grants were awarded for projects that provide ongoing support and services. Sustainability grants assist with long-term planning goals. These grants went to the Parks and Recreation for the Fourth of July fireworks display and to Camp Rainbow, a camp for special needs children in Decatur County.
Congratulations to our February and March grantees!
