Organizations receiving funds were The Sanctuary Sober Living Home, Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Jim Hill Middle School, Sunnyside Elementary School, Prairie Grit Adaptive Sports, and Minot Public School Foundation.
“The last few years, our group has been extremely passionate about supporting programs that provide food, clothing, and basic essentials to the youth in our community,” says Chelsea Kirkhammer, Power of the Purse President. “It’s exciting for all of us to see these programs continue to grow and we are eager to support them on their journey.”
Programs that will benefit from these grant funds include bus passes for students through Jim Hill Middle School, campus enhancements at Domestic Violence Crisis Center, a Summer STEAM Academy for girls through Sunnyside Elementary School, two additional sleds for sled hockey through Prairie Grit Adaptive Sports, and the “Back to Basic” hybrid school pantries through the Minot Public School Foundation.
New this year, organizations submitted videos with their grant applications. These videos can be viewed in the coming weeks on Power of the Purse’s Facebook page @powerofthepurseminot.
