Three worthy organizations are the latest recipients of funding from the Azalia Solar Community Grant Program.
"We are proud to continue our tradition of supporting community programs and organizations in the Milan area with this latest round of community grants," said Azalia Solar Public Engagement Manager Brian O'Shea. "The latest recipients are doing great work to promote education, build healthier communities, and foster community development."
Milan High School's Code Red Robotics team received a $2,000 grant to support their elementary and middle school robotics teams.
"On behalf of Code Red Robotics, we are grateful to Azalia Solar for once again being generous in their support of our team. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that Milan students K-12 are able to engage in real-world STEM activities beyond the school day." said Jennifer Glushyn, lead mentor for the team. "Local sponsors like Azalia Solar help fund robotics teams in all four schools in our district. The robot built by our high school students will be on display at the 3rd Thursday in July, August, and September. Come see what Azalia Solar and our other local sponsors have allowed our students to design, build, and code."
A grant to the London Township Citizens Civic Club will help repair and replace playground equipment at the organization's property on Tuttle Hill Road in London Township.
"Thank you to Azalia Solar for helping us move forward with playground improvements. These funds will help us get our basketball court in good working condition and ensure safety in our playground area," said Director Sandra Patterson Mitchell.
A $1,000 grant to Milan Seniors for Healthy Living will help the organization transition to compostable meal containers for seniors served by their senior nutrition program.
"Thank you to Azalia Solar for the many ways you thoughtfully invest into our greater Milan community," said Executive Director Jennifer Michalak. "Milan Seniors for Healthy Living is delighted to address our goals of environmental sustainability with these funds by investments into compostable trays for our Meals on Wheels program."
