Park City Sunrise Rotary awards grant applications
January 12, 2016
The Park City Sunrise Rotary Club presented checks to the recipients of its annual Grants Program at a breakfast meeting held Thursday morning. Each fall the Sunrise Club accepts applications for grants from local non-profit groups. The Club awarded grants to 25 non-profits this year, totaling over $20,000.
The recipients this year include local Park City and Summit County groups: Alf Engen Ski Museum, Arthritis Foundation, Arts-Kids, KPCW, Big Brothers Big Sisters or Utah, Christian Center, Holy Cross Ministries, The Hope Alliance, Mountain Town Music, Mountainlands Community Housing Trust, Leadership Park city, PC Reads, Park City School Disctrict, PC Tots, Peace House, Park City Treble Makers, People’s Health Clinic, Philippines Humanitarian, Recycle Utah, Summit Land Conservancy, Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter, Park City Anti-Bullying Campaign, Women’s Athenaeum, YMCA and Youthlinc.
The funds for this Grant Program come from efforts made throughout the year by Park City Sunrise Rotary. The most significant of these being the food concessions at the annual Park City 4th of July Celebration in City Park. Each year the Sunrise Club manages and staffs the volunteers to provide food and drink to over 2,700 people each year following the parade. All proceeds from the 4th of July, and other activities such as the bi-annual Hazardous Waste Collection Day, in association with Recycle Utah, and new Tour de Sunrise Family Fun Ride & Walk, go into the general fund, which is then given back to the community in the form of grants.
