Foundation wants input on public health grant application

Peabody Community Foundation is seeking a Kansas Health Foundation grant to encourage healthy behaviors and wants to know what community members want.

“This is a chance to look at what the community needs for healthy lifestyles and get funding for health-related needs the community wants,” said foundation president Nelson Patton.

A public meeting at 7 p.m. Aug. 20 in the high school cafeteria will seek feedback from residents.

“This will be a chance for the public to let us know what they feel is important in the area of community health,” Patton said. “It could be a designated bike path, a hiking trail, or education about a variety of topics on healthy choices.”

For more information, contact Patton at (620) 983-2798.
