FORT WORTH, Texas (October 4, 2019) – The Sundt Foundation awarded a total of $8,000 in grants to three local North Texas nonprofits during its third-quarter disbursements.
“It really means a lot to me and my family that my place of work is able to give back to a non-profit that has helped my daughter and her family,” said Barbara Terry of the North Texas giving committee about the $3,000 grant to Arlington Life Shelter.
Grants for the third quarter included:
The American Heart Association received a grant for $3,000 to support raising awareness of the importance of heart health and free health screenings for low-income communities.
Arlington Life Shelter, which received $3,000, provides services that promote self-sufficiency by providing shelter, employment programs and transitional services for North Texans impacted by homelessness.
Campfire Creek Therapeutic Riding Center received $2,000 to provide therapy programs that improve cognitive, social, balance, and communication skills for students living in poverty or dealing with severe physical or emotional challenges.
The Sundt Foundation awards grants each quarter to area charities that support disadvantaged children and families. Nonprofits are selected through an application process and reviewed by a committee of Sundt employee-owners.
