Assaria Community Fund awards grant

Monday, July 15th, 2019

The Greater Salina Community Foundation recently awarded a grant from the Assaria Community Fund.

The Assaria Family Park Committee received $1,000 to purchase two new bike racks for the park. As park usage continues to increase, so does the number of bicycles on park grounds. The committee plans to place these new racks at both the north and south ends of the playground to improve safety and security.

“It is exciting to see great efforts to continue to make our communities better,” said Steven Johnson, a representative of the Assaria Community Fund Grants Committee. “The foundation fund provides a way to help implement some of our good ideas.”

Annual grants from the Assaria Community Fund are awarded to charitable projects that improve the quality of life for citizens in Assaria, Kansas. In the past, the fund has supported other park initiatives, including new playground equipment and safety signage.

Starting July 1, grant applications to the Assaria Community Fund will be open for consideration year-round. Visit www.gscf.org/search-apply-for-a-grant for more information.
