HRH Foundation awards $4,000 in community grants
October 21, 2013
The Holy Rosary Healthcare (HRH) Foundation is pleased to announce that four community grant applications have been selected to receive funding – Glendive Public Library, Rosebud Public School, Forsyth Beautification Committee and Forsyth Schools and the Outlaw Baseball Club – as part of the September 2013 application process.
The Foundation has granted $1,250 to Glendive Public Library. Funding will benefit You are You, I am Me Sensory Story Time, a program designed for children aged 3-6, with autism, ADHD, and sensory processing complications. Because 1 in 6 children experience some type of developmental disability, Sensory Story Time will also guide parents to cultivate positive learning and behavioral developments in disabled children.
Additionally, $2,000 was awarded to Rosebud Public School, for the replacement of their existing playground equipment. A new free-standing structure will be built to provide children and their families with a number of activities and safe playing surfaces.
The Forsyth Beautification Committee and Forsyth Schools were awarded $250 toward the replacement of the community basketball court at Marcey's Park. Established in 2007, the Beautification Committee has graciously served the Forsyth community, including low-income and senior residents. The basketball court is located in a popular community park; revitalization efforts are expected to increase court usage substantially.
Finally, the Outlaw Baseball Club will receive $500, to expand their scholarship program. These scholarships will provide an opportunity for up to two youth to participate in the baseball program.
All grants are funded through the HRH Foundation, stemming from generous donor contributions designated for community-based, health-enhancing projects. Applications are accepted quarterly; the next deadline for submission is December 1.
