Ten deserving community centers across the U.S. have been selected to compete in the contest and have the chance to be awarded a $50,000 center renovation grant.
“Drops of Good” is an online competition where the three centers that receive the most online votes earn a $50,000 renovation. Now through June 8, the public is encouraged to vote daily for SNBC by visiting www.maxwellhouse.com. In June, Maxwell House will announce the top three winners as well as award each runner up with a $5,000 grant.
“We are very honored to have been selected to compete in “Drops of Good,” said Megan Agee, SNBC director. “To win would provide us with much-needed financial resources and allow us to tackle some long overdue center improvements.”
With nearly 50 percent of Americans receiving government aid and more families than ever before in need, communities throughout the country have come to rely on local community centers for vital support.
A program of Aspiranet, SNBC shines a light on the community by providing free daily afterschool programs, adult education opportunities, technology and media arts classes, and family support services. The center serves more than 1,000 youth and adults at five middle and elementary schools, a recreation clubhouse, and a community storefront each day. SNBC is recognized as one of the country’s best afterschool programs by the Afterschool Alliance and MetLife Foundation.
