Dollars awarded by the Community Foundation of Greater Plymouth County (CFGPC) will help 20, 501(c)3 organizations and government entities to improve the quality of life in communities in Plymouth County.

Grant selections are made in an effort to create a better quality of life for people in Plymouth County. The local governing committee reviews the applications from charitable organizations serving their community.

This year, the advisory board’s grant committee recommended funds totaling $106,314, to entities across the county.

Kelly Nashleanas, executive board member, said with the COVID-19 pandemic, this year was really hard.

“Typically we have a presentation of the awards, with a gathering like we did at the Wells Visitor Center and Ice Cream Parlor, to celebrate the awards,” she explained. “This year with COVID-19 we all decided we would not have an awards presentation like we typically do.

“We just basically mailed or delivered the checks to the recipients. Mike Kooistra, who is our grant president, notified them by e-mail,” she said.

This year the foundation awarded three $10,000 grants, the maximum amount awarded.

Receiving the $10,000 grants are the City of Remsen for grocery store development; PlyWood Trail, for bike trail - Phase I; and the City of Craig for a community event sign.
