During the 2021-2022 school year, Lincoln High School grantmakers learned about a relatively new nonprofit organization, Adopt One Block, which they ultimately decided to fund.
As LHS moved into their beautiful new building and staff carefully considered ways in which students could become good stewards of their new space and the surrounding area, Adopt One Block was top of mind. We are so excited to see how community service is becoming a huge part of what it means to be a Cardinal, as exemplified by their Day of Service on October 12th.
Not all CommuniCare grants become longer term relationships between schools and nonprofit organizations, but we are happy to support those relationships whenever they develop. Three cheers for service leaders!
