Foundation will host breakfast, announce grants

The Peabody Foundation annual breakfast will be from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Peabody Senior Center.

Every year the foundation officers and board members host the breakfast as a fundraiser for foundation projects. The foundation also will announce the winners of the annual grant competition at Saturday’s breakfast.

“We were thrilled this year to have 12 applications,” said Lynn Berns, Peabody Foundation president. “The winners will be announced at about 9:30 a.m.”

The total amount of funding available to local groups this year was $3,000. The awards will be made to groups affiliated with a church, governmental unit, or 501(c)3 organization. Projects must promote or enhance Peabody.

Berns encourages anyone interested in learning more about the foundation to come to the breakfast and ask questions.

“Most of the board members will be there and we are always glad to have a chance to visit with people in the community about the foundation and its purpose,” she said.

The cost of breakfast is by donation. For more information, contact Lynn Berns at (620) 983-2328.
