Beacon Light programs awarded COVID-19 grant
BRADFORD — The second round of grants from the McKean County Community Foundation of COVID-19 Assistance Fund was recently distributed.
Beacon Light Behavioral Health System and Beacon Light Adult Residential Services were each awarded a grant of $2,500 along with other local human services agencies.
Foundation representatives recently distributed a total of $33,530 to 16 local nonprofit agencies.
Recipients of the awards had a variety of needs due to COVID-related issues. Some of the common requests included issues due to lack of fund raising ability, low enrollment, increase request for services and the need to purchase the personal protection supplies required to allow their agencies to safely provide their programs and services to the public.
“We are grateful to the McKean County Community Foundation for providing these important funds to Beacon Light during these challenging times,” said Jill Dunn, vice president of institutional advancement at Journey Health System. “This grant will help us secure much needed PPE that is critical in keeping our clients and staff safe.”
