PACIFIC COUNTY — In an effort to help organizations, groups and individuals who are looking for a little extra funding for events and activities that build resilience in South Pacific County, WellSpring Community Network has released the application for their 2018 Mini-Grants. Mini-Grants range from $200 to $1,000 and anyone may apply, including student groups.
The examples of past mini grants include, but are not limited to, parenting education, food programs, early childhood development, substance abuse and teen pregnancy prevention, and family enrichment. In the past, Mini-Grants have been awarded for programs like Empty Bowls, Pack2School, Wrestling Camp, Boys and Girls Club, and the Outrunning Poverty Fun Run.
“The mission of WellSpring is to support community wellness in South Pacific County through active collaborations,” the organization said in a press release. “Through advocacy, awareness and action we can create a community culture that strengthens families, reduces substance use and promotes mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.”
Applications are due Dec. 15. The application is available online at www.wellspringpacific.org/apply. For more information, contact Michelle Zilli with the Timberland Regional Library at 360-484-3877 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
