The 2017 Impact Grant awarded to Habitat for Humanity South Sarasota County is presented to Aimee Holmes, Chief Develpment Officer.
The Foundation has generously partnered with Habitat to lauch a new home revitalization program, A Brush with Kindness. The award of $16,000, along with paint donated by Sherwin Williams, will be used to paint one home per month for a qualified homeowner. This is a one-year program that will benefit income-qualified homewoners in need. It is Habitat's intent to help South Sarasota's most vulnerable population revitalize their homes with pride and dignity.
The Englewood Community Care Clinic, Inc. dedicated the beginning of its compact new laboratory to the Plantation Community Foundation. Members of the Foundation's Impact Grant Committee, Foundation Board Members, Clinic volunteers and the Executive Director attended a ribbon cutting ceremony. The Clinic plans to add equipment to its lab with the remaining $12,000 in funds from the grant.
