LANCASTER, PA (June 1, 2022) – The Junior League of Lancaster, PA, Inc. (JLL), an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers, has announced the 2022 Annual Community Grant winners.
The two winners selected were Lancaster Science Factory and Community Action Partnership of Lancaster County. Grants Chair Leslie McCarthy stated that she is “proud of the Committee and the generosity of the Junior League members for investing funds to the community.”
The Lancaster Science Factory’s mission is to inspire curiosity, creativity, and confidence by fostering an inclusive environment for hands-on STEM exploration. The $5,000 grant will be going to add additional STEM components to the children’s programming and help to continue a thriving community that learns through discovery and uses critical thinking to build a better tomorrow.
Community Action Partnership of Lancaster County (CAP) is the recipient of a $2,500 grant. The Community Action Partnership is Lancaster County’s largest anti-poverty organization and boasts a service profile that interrupts inter-generational poverty with programs that assist families at every age and place in life.
“These grants will provide funding for McCaskey High School students to have paid STEM internships this summer with these organizations,” continued McCarthy.
