This (Thursday) Morning the Lebanon Area Foundation held its annual Community Cares Celebration event. The goal, as always, was to celebrate the year of giving and announce the grant recipients for the next year. Executive Director Melinda Fries said the event couldn’t have gone better.
The Lebanon Area Foundation also announced the total amount of money they’ll be supporting area nonprofit with in 2023. A total of $140,000.
In total, the community cares grants will give funding to 28 Laclede County Non-Profits, including two new agencies, Central Missouri Foster and Adoption, and Elevate Lebanon.
