Two local non-profit organizations were recently awarded a 2018 Community Impact Grant from the North Georgia Community Foundation, according to a press release.

The Forsyth County Public Library received the grant for its Leap into Literacy program aimed at introducing infants, toddlers and preschoolers to reading and teaching the importance of early literacy, while The Place of Forsyth County was awarded the grant to help fund its young adult internship program that provides youth with training opportunities.

The two were among 27 organizations that received a total of $66,611.50 in grant money across the foundation’s 15-county region.

“The non-profits in our footprint do an amazing job of identifying important needs in the communities that they serve,” NGCF President and CEO Michelle Prater said in the press release. “We are proud to be able to support their efforts and the difference they are making.”
