Local

EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – The COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region has awarded a 14th round of allocations, awarding nearly $400,000 to 15 nonprofit applicants.

This round of allocations will help provide COVID-19 antibody testing for donated blood, zoo memberships for ALICE households, food for at-risk children, staffing needs, programs to support social-emotional learning for kids, clinic supplies, and security and safety equipment.

The Public Education Foundation received $30,000 for the “House Project.” Instead of purchasing lumber for a house, the lumber will be used to construct 85 tables and chairs for flexible outdoor seating at 15 schools within the EVSC.
