Mary’s Shelter, Literacy Council Receive $90K Grants
Five area non-profits, including South Baldwin Literacy Council in Foley and Mary’s Shelter in Elberta, will now be able to better serve our community thanks to $90,000 grants from Impact 100 Baldwin County. The Historic Blakeley Foundation, Daphne Search and Rescue and the Alabama Free Clinic also received grants. SBLC provides educational services free of charge to youth and adults while specializing in GED tutoring, ESL classes and youth programs. The grant funds will be used to convert a storage garage into classroom space allowing SBLC to expand its educational and tutoring services by 100 students or more. Mary’s Shelter provides family-style living to adult pregnant women and is devoted to improving the lives of their residents through programs which focus on education, employment, and financial independence. Impact funds will be used as part of their capital improvement project of constructing a metal building to use as a retail thrift store.
