EL PASO, Texas (September 16, 2022) – The Sundt Foundation awarded $7,800 to two nonprofits in El Paso during its current giving round. El Paso Child Guidance Center and Children at Risk both received $3,900.
“These organizations were chosen because we believe that their efforts will make a difference by helping the community prosper,” said Joseph Riccillo, the Sundt Foundation’s Vice President and El Paso region board member. “Being able to contribute and support organizations like this is what the foundation is all about.”
El Paso Child Guidance Center provides child psychiatry, therapy and in-home skill building to help children learn coping skills and receive mental health education. This grant will help fund this organization’s ability to provide care to the community’s youth.
Children at Risk is a research and advocacy organization that addresses public policies that affect children. The grant will help to train volunteers, create awareness ads for children’s apps and games and further support the organization’s research.
The Sundt Foundation awards quarterly grants to local El Paso-area charities that support disadvantaged children and families. Nonprofits are selected through an application process and reviewed by a committee of local Sundt employee-owners.
