GRANT COMMITTEE UPDATE

Dear Rotarians,
 
It is with great excitement that I share the following Grant Committee update!
 
In your Service,
Caleb Summerfelt

FIRST SET OF GRANT REQUESTS FOR 2018-2019

Written by Karen Griffith
 
The Grant Committee met and we made decisions on granting the following requests:
 
The Community Chorus of Port Townsend:  $500.  This grant will defray costs of sending one person to Choral Conductors Workshop in Ocean Shore in late July.  They are in need of a new conductor.  A new conductor will impact the 105 member chorus, their family and friends and any attendees of their two-yearly concerts.  
 
Chimacum Backpacks for Kids program:  $600.  This organization’s goal is to fund food costs for children in the Chimacum schools who experience food insecurity.  During the summer months they provide 320 backpacks for children.  They have recently become a 501(c)3 organization and this grant will help defray the costs of that application so that no money donated to the cause will be diverted for that expense.
 
Citizens for School Safety:  $1000  This program was started with seed money from our club in the light of school shootings.  A group of concerned citizens met together and decided one priority is to make the Chimacum Schools safe harbor for “sheltering in place”.  With that in mind, 72-hour emergency food kits have been purchased for the students in the three Chimacum Schools.  This grant will allow CSS to complete the need for the Middle School of Chimacum.  Rotarian Z Jack Randal has led the effort for this worthy cause.
