PWSCC was recently awarded over $20,000 from the local United Way chapter. They have long supported the college’s Adult Basic Education program, which this year received $10,000 to be used for general operating expenses.
The Health & Fitness Center received $6,000 to purchase a recumbent bike. Unlike traditional bikes, this machine also includes an upper body component which provides a full-body aerobic workout and is less stressful on joints.
The Maxine and Jesse Whitney Museum received $4,000 in funding to support the upcoming Fifth Annual Community Science Night. The funding will be used for part of the travel expenses of educators, as well as for arts and crafts supplies and consumable scientific supplies to help children and their families better understand scientific concepts being covered during the event.
There was also a small donation made to the Last Frontier Theatre Conference. PWSCC greatly appreciates United Way’s support of their programming, and wishes to congratulate program coordinators Sarah Histand, Michael Holcombe, and Wendy Goldstein on their successful grant applications.
