PDC 30 is excited to announce the winners of our Spring, 2018 Grant Cycle. Congratulations to Youth Service Bureau of Illinois Valley - winner of the $10,000 PATCH Foundation Grant and Marklund Children's Home - winner of the Community Service Grant renovations.
The PATCH Foundation Grant will be awarded to Youth Service Bureau of Illinois Valley (YSB). YSB is a nonprofit foster care/child welfare agency serving almost 1,000 children in 20 counties throughout North-Central Illinois. They plan to use the PATCH funding to coordinate a 2-week overnight summer camp opportunity for children in foster care, enabling the children to attend summer camp alongside children outside of the foster care program.
The Community Service Grant will be awarded to Marklund Children’s Home. This non-profit organization offers residential, educational, and pre-vocational services for individuals with developmental disabilities of all ages. To complete their project proposal, our volunteer team will repaint 9 bedrooms at Marklund’s Haverkampf Home for 16 residents with disabilities.
Thank you to all of the organizations that applied for a grant during our spring, 2018 award cycle. Our Fall, 2018 Community Service Grant cycle is now open - submit your application before August 20th on our website: https://pdc30.com/grant.
