Cabarrus Rotary awards grants

CONCORD — The Rotary Club of Cabarrus County gave contributions to four local organizations for the services they provide in the county.

At its Jan. 11 breakfast meeting, the club gave:

* $500 to the Cabarrus Arts Council, represented at the meeting by Noelle Scott. Scott said the money would support gallery programs being developed by the organization, including one gallery devoted to local artists.

* $700 to Arc of Cabarrus County. Sue Price with ARC outlined that group’s mission as “improving the quality of life for people with mental disabilities.” The grant money will cover one year of expenses for “Sibshops”, a program providing support for siblings of people with mental disabilities.

* $1,000 to the Community Free Clinic, which will provide a sound system for the clinic to create a comforting atmosphere, according to Venetia Skahen, a clinic representative.

Skahen also accepted $500 for the Community Health Center, a nonprofit center that provides health services to Medicare/Medicaid and uninsured patients of all ages.

Rotary Club President Steve Grubb said, “It feels great to be a part of an organization that gives back to the community like our Rotary club does. We put in a lot of hours to raise these funds, and it’s always nice to see the tangible results of our work. These are all wonderful organizations and we’re glad to support them.”

The groups all applied to the club for grants. For more information, visit www.cabarrusrotary.org.
