Grants for public educators, nonprofit service providers available

The Longaberger Family Foundation and the “I’m a Child of Appalachia Fund” at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio are once again offering grants to K-12 public educators and nonprofit service providers working in partnership with K-12 education. Grant awards will support and encourage students to acquire a broad, deep knowledge base in subject’s integral to robust citizenship; forge positive relationships with the self and the wider-world; and analyze different views and take action. This grant opportunity is available at www.AppalachianOhio.org/Civics, and applications will be accepted from K-12 educators and service providers in the 32 counties of Appalachian Ohio until Friday, Oct. 29. An effective civics education program provides students with the knowledge, skills, and disposition necessary to become informed and engaged citizens. This grant program seeks to support those efforts by providing educators and service providers with resources to actively implement civics education opportunities for K-12 public school students. Grant requests must be between $500 and $5,000, and more than $30,000 in funding is available. The 32 counties of Appalachian Ohio include Columbiana, Jefferson and Mahoning.

Clean Wellsville Day announced

WELLSVILLE — In cooperation with the village, the Wellsville Community Foundation will lead a Clean Wellsville Streets Day from 9 a.m. to 12 noon Saturday, Oct. 2. Councilwoman Karen Dash is calling all community residents to participate, as many hands make lighter work and a brighter town.

Participants will meet at 9 a.m. in the downtown gazebo and be dispatched as teams to clean curbs, paint and pickup trash.

Dash also encourages teammembers to bring their own gloves, shovels, rakes and brooms if possible.

Bottled water will be provided.

Members of the WCF kicked off this initiative in May, starting at the north end of town and working their way down Main Street.
