The three organizations chosen to receive our $500 SatchGrant this quarter are:
*The Center for Independent Living for their group job shadowing event in order for their students with disabilities to take tours of the Hippodrome State Theatre and The Florida Museum of Natural History so that they can gain experience with jobs in the arts and communication field.
*The Sequential Artists Workshop to furnish their workshop so that they can provide a space to educate students in the art of visual storytelling, support creative investigation, exploration and excellence in cartooning and to promote literacy in sequential art.
*The Center for Breastfeeding and Newborns for their workshop series at their Eastside Family Practice Clinic on Waldo road in order for them to provide attendance incentive to African American women that attend their clinic.
Thank you all for your applications. We love the opportunity to be a part of such great organizations working for positive change in our community. The organizations listed above will receive awards next week. And as always, we encourage those organizations that did not receive an award to apply for our upcoming quarterly grant due on March 31, 2012.
