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.
Stir-n-Up Hope in Ferdinand was also awarded $30,000 to support youth in the care of the Spencer County Juvenile Probation Office. Funds will underwrite 16 weeks of Equine-Assisted Learning for 48 juvenile offenders.
