Four Morenci agencies will receive grants from the Lenawee United Way. The United Way Board of Directors recently approved the program funding recommendations of the Community Fund Distribution committees.
The Morenci Fire Association will receive $805 for helmet microphones; Stair Public Library will receive $1,000 for services such as the Summer Reading Program; Morenci Elementary School will receive $1,500 for the winter weather wear program; and the City of Morenci will receive $1,000 for its Summer Day Recreation program.
Each year, Lenawee United Way provides funds to non-profit programs in Morenci and nine other communities. The funds available each year are based on dollars raised through Lenawee United Way’s annual fund raising campaign.
The Community Fund Distribution process has been a part of the mission of Lenawee United Way as a way of reaching the needs specific to each community “to create a measurably better life for the people of Lenawee County.”
