The checks have been mailed, the recipients congratulated!
Women4given’s fifth annual grants season has drawn to a close – at least our part of it. For the grant recipients, the fun has just begun.
We are thrilled to witness the impact on women and children to come from these gifts totaling $24,200.
The Women4given Grant Awards for 2015 are:
$15,000 to Rebirth: East St. Louis to provide affordable quality housing for families and job skill training for youth;
$3,020 to the Christian Activity Center to support Here We Grow, an edible garden project and nutrition education program for mothers and children;
$2,700 to Kids for Christ to fund a Kids Community Bible Study (after-school Bible study program with Bible lessons, crafts, music, and activities) at a Southwestern Illinois public school;
$2,400 to Christian Activity Center to sponsor education, life enhancement, and recreation for our young friends, Jalyn and Jerrica;
$1,080 to Chances for Children to provide the financial support to care for one child in their orphanage in Haiti for one year.
As these organizations implement their projects and programs, I’ll keep you in the loop with photos and progress reports.
May God bless the people who use these funds to support women and children in Christian love! And may God bless YOU for your generosity!
