Community Grants 2012

The Junior League of Lynchburg Community Board has held its Grants Decision meeting and has awarded $4,000 divided amongst 8 area non-profit organizations. It was quite evident that the common theme for the grant applications was based on fulfilling basic needs such as hunger. The JLL is pleased to have awarded these grant monies to worthy non-profits in the area and are looking forward to seeing these dollars at work. We hope to be able to continue to award grants in the Fall of 2012.
