The Porter County Community Foundation recently awarded a grant to NeighborLink Porter County, an organization that provides assistance to those in need.
NeighborLink is a nonprofit that connects Porter County residents who need assistance with those that can help. Volunteers join together to complete various projects for those in need in the community.
“Keeping the marginalized in Porter County safe, clean, warm and dry through our network of volunteers and business partnerships is one of our top priorities,” said Judy Alders, Executive Director of NeighborLink Porter County. “The award of grant funds will allow us to be more far-reaching in our efforts to help those in need living in our communities. We so appreciate our relationship with the Porter County Community Foundation and all of those who give so graciously to their endeavors.”
The funds from the grant will help cover expenses to be sure the necessary projects can be completed. The types of projects might include yard work, transportation services, appliance repair, building wheelchair ramps, plumbing projects and more.
