[FERNDALE] We are now into February and that little rascal, Phil the groundhog promises six more weeks of winter. Don’t let that pessimistic rodent discourage you from applying for a Beautification Grant. Whether the project is an established garden that needs some sprucing up or your community group has identified a space for a new project, Sullivan Renaissance is available to guide you through the application process. Be it an onsite visit to discuss your vision or a phone consultation – they are ready to help you into action. Application deadline is March 1st.
March 1st is also when the Summer Intern applications are due. Sullivan Renaissance in partnership with The Center for Workforce Development, will hire several young adults (ages 16-20) to work alongside volunteers on community projects this summer. Interns will participate in a series of youth development meetings and will adopt a “Day of Service” project. Salaries are competitive presenting a great opportunity to dig in and learn new skills! Join neighbors and businesses to brighten the community, while building experience that can be used to enhance your resume as well as your neighborhood!
Beautification Grants and Intern Applications are available online at SullivanRenaissance.org. They may be completed electronically or mailed to: Sullivan Renaissance, c/o The Gerry Foundation, PO Box 311, Liberty, NY 12754.
