Salisbury parks to get MLK grant
The Salisbury Parks and Recreation department was one of 14 agencies to receive a $2,500 grant Friday from the Martin Luther King Jr. Commission of the N.C. Human Relations Commission.
Administration Secretary Moses Carey presented certificates to representatives of the agencies receiving the grants during a reception following the annual State Employees Martin Luther King Jr. Observance Day program Friday in Raleigh.
Grant funds will be used to create or strengthen programs that support the legacy of King, especially those which benefit youth.
The commission received 55 applications this year.
