Three Erie County Schools Receive Mini Grants

Posted: Updated:

Three Erie County schools are getting a hand from the Saint Vincent Health Center Auxiliary.

They awarded three $1,000 grants to fund health and wellness programs.

Saint George School, Blessed Sacrament, and Union City Middle School were the top picks.

The grant proposals were judged by how well they were written, how teachers will implement them, and how they benefit the students.

A thousand dollars can go a long way.

"You wouldn't think a thousand dollars would create such an impact," said Auxiliary President Kathryn Burns. "We've had some return winners telling us how the original thousand they receive continues year after year to help students with health issues, be it physical health or even mental health." 

The auxiliary has given out more than $75,000 in grants over the past 25 years.
