(Allegan MI) The Allegan County Community Foundation’s Love Your Hometown project has been cancelled for 2020. Last year, Love Your Hometown funded ten projects throughout Allegan County and Bloomingdale. Love Your Hometown encouraged community members to submit ideas to enhance, improve or beautify their hometown. Community members voted on the project they most wanted to see happen in their hometown.
“We are so disappointed to have to cancel,” shared Theresa Bray, the Foundation CEO. “Last year we funded some great projects: a bike repair station along the Kal-Haven trail, a natural playground in Hamilton, a Founder’s Day celebration in Martin, free little libraries, and more. This year there were too few applications to hold the event. We will go back to the drawing board and determine if Love Your Hometown is going to return. Some great ideas were submitted, and we hope to seek other funding sources to help them come to fruition.”
The Foundation provides donors charitable giving opportunities which result in grants and scholarships. For more information about the Foundation, the upcoming peanut butter drive for county food pantries, scholarship deadlines, or donating, please visit: www.alleganfoundation.org.
