Cordle Cares Foundation Awards Community Grants
The Cordle Cares Foundation (CCF) is excited to announce the recipients of its inaugural community grants to Non-Profit Organizations in Fairfield County. Four grants were awarded:
Bremen-Bethel Presbyterian Church - $750 grant awarded for the “Breakfast to Go” program. This project ensures that students who are eligible for free or reduced price meals at school have access to breakfasts on the weekends when school meals are not available to them. The program is open to any student attending Bremen Elementary School, provided they have permission from a parent or guardian. Volunteers meet weekly at Bremen-Bethel Presbyterian Church (BBPC) to pack the breakfasts, then the meals are delivered to the school on the last day of school each week.
Family YMCA of Lancaster Fairfield County - $1,000 grant for the “LIVESTRONG at the YMCA” program to help cancer survivors begin the journey toward recovery. “LIVESTRONG at the YMCA” is a free twelve-week, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors. This program supports the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their "new normal.” YMCA personal trainers work with each participant to fit the program to his or her individual needs. The instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise, and supportive cancer care.
Lancaster High School Ecology Club - $500 grant for purchasing recycling bins for the club’s paper recycling project. The Lancaster High School Ecology Club has been doing paper recycling since 2001. By purchasing easy to clean, sturdy plastic recycle bins, they hope to alleviate the need of replacing the bins every few years. This will allow the group to use its regular fundraising activities to fund its environmental charitable donations, campus clean-up activities, and other service projects.
Aha! A Hands-on Adventure, A Children’s Museum - $1,000 grant for the “Art Zone” and weekly programming. The programs and exhibits offered at AHA! provide parents and grandparents the opportunity to learn with their children and to facilitate communication and inquiry, which enrich children’s social development. Weekly programs include “Messy Monday” and “Science Saturday.” The mission of AHA! is to surround children, and the adults in their lives, with a hands-on, interactive, playful, and educational environment that invites curiosity and allows exploration, encourages participation, and celebrates the childlike wonder in us all.
Cordle Cares Foundation
Cordle Cares Foundation is a 503(c) non-profit charity whose goal is to provide help for those who need it the most. The vision of CCF is simple: Support gives Hope. It is a simple vision but a profound thought. Imagine what could be accomplished if everyone was able to have support provided for them. We feel amazing things would be accomplished and want to see it come to fruition. This is why CCF was founded by Jimmy Cordle. Jim is an Offensive Lineman for the New York Giants and started CCF as his way to provide support. (read more about Jim Cordle)
