The three grants chosen to receive our $500 Satch Grant this quarter were:
*Counseling and Education Associates for supplies for tobacco use prevention and cessation programs offered to individuals, groups, elementary and middle schools and classes in substance abuse treatment centers.
*Operation Catnip in order to pay for sugeries for as many as 10 - 15 animals which will prevent the birth of up to 30 litters of kittens and/or puppies or potentially 2-300 additional animals over a years time.
*Joseph Williams Elementary to take their regular education third graders to see A Christmas Carol at the Hippodrome.
If you've been awarded a grant, checks will be mailed next week. Please follow up by providing us with pictures of your progress towards your goal so that I can post them to this blog.
We were very pleased with all grant proposals and wish we could help more. If you didn't receive a grant, please consider resubmitting for the next round of grants due on December 31, 2011. And please stay in touch and let us know if we can help you achieve your goals in any other way.
