Earlier this month, the Specialized Needs Recreation Program (SNR) was awarded a grant for $4,388.00 from the Inland Northwest Community Foundation (INCF) through the Florence Wasmer Fund for Children & Families. The grant will be used to support SNR’s Camp All-Stars Program.
Camp All-Stars provides day camps during spring, summer, and winter vacation breaks and school days off. The camp is typically filled with six (6) hours of meaningful and memorable activities such as community outings, crafts, and games. The day camp is provided for youth ages 4-21.
The INCF has awarded more than $37 million in grants and scholarships throughout the 20-county region since 1974. They accomplish this by awarding grants to nonprofit organizations in order to enrich education, arts, and culture, to provide critical human services, promote economic and community development, and to support the environment. Currently, INCF manages 262 funds with assets of $50 million (as of July 31, 2009).
“We are honored and grateful to have received this very generous grant from the Inland Northwest Community Foundation” says Angie Goucher, Executive Director of Specialized Needs Recreation.
SNR is a non-profit organization that provides recreational opportunities for youth and adults who have disabilities and or special needs. For further information on this organization, please contact Angie Goucher at 755-6781 or visit the website at www.snr.bz.
