Alcoa awards $10k grant to children's home

SALISBURY — The Alcoa Foundation has awarded a $10,000 grant to Nazareth Children’s Home to expand its current educational programs to reach more children in need, the foundation said in a press release.
That amount is part of grants worth $65,500 the foundation has awarded to North Carolina nonprofit organizations to provide workplace training, educate students and better protect the environment.
“After reviewing many grant applications, we decided to narrow our focus on helping children and adults through educational programs and activities,” Mark Gross, Alcoa Badin technical manager, said in the press release. “The programs will help build a brighter future for people in this community.”
Additional grants include:
• The Resource Development Center in Albemarle will receive $15,000 for education/workforce training for citizens in need.
• Pfeiffer University’s School of Nursing, Misenheimer, $13,000 for education/workforce training in health care.
• West Badin Beautification, Badin, $18,500 to restore and enhance the West Badin Community Center, including funds to improve storefronts, purchase furniture and provide ongoing maintenance.
• Badin Volunteer Fire Department, Badin, $5,000 for fire safety services.
• Park Ridge Christian School, Albemarle, $2,500 to engage students in extra-curricular activities.
• Big Sweep statewide, $1,500 to support clean-up efforts across North Carolina waterways.
Alcoa and the Alcoa Foundation have donated more than $4 million to North Carolina nonprofit organizations since 1990.
“Alcoa is dedicated to the Badin community and the surrounding counties. We look forward to working with our nonprofit partners to make a positive difference in the area,” Gross said.
