At a time when money is hard to come by for non-profit organizations, The United Way of Greenwich is awarding almost $2 million in grants to help local service organizations through next year.
The grants, approved by The United Way's board of directors for 2010-11, will go help health and human service groups. The money came from fundraising the United Way has done over the past year. Although local organizations have had to make budget cuts, they continue to help those in need.
Stuart Adelberg, President of Greenwich United Way, said the money would be distributed among 25 organizations. Family Centers received $400,000 that will go to individuals in crisis and scholarships for preschool children.
According to a press release, $787,375 will go to programs that strengthen children and families, including the Boys and Girls Club, Child Guidance Center, Girl Scouts, Greenwich Family YMCA and Banksville Community House.
