SFS Awarded Grant for Summit House

SFS Awarded Grant for Summit House

April 10, 2011

Sioux Falls Seminary is celebrating the award of a United Way Community Impact Grant for the work of Summit House. The financial award will help enhance the neighborhood impact of the A Growing Place gardens at Lowell MST Elementary School. Funds will also aid in the creation of a Summer Science Camp program and establish valuable internship opportunities for students.

Serving as a teaching garden, A Growing Place has empowered individuals to become good neighbors, encouraged teamwork, inspired leadership formation, and become a conduit for neighborhood revitalization. The teaching gardens are committed to growing hope through the empowerment of children and adults and through the formation of leaders within Pettigrew Heights.

The United Way Community Impact Grant is building on the excitement of a another financial award received just a few months ago from the C.J. and Alene Delbridge Family Endowment to support a tool-lending library, area Harvest Festival, and hospitality.

Sioux Falls Seminary is encouraged by the support of Summit House's mission from the Sioux Empire United Way, the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, and other community partners. To learn more about Summit House at Sioux Falls Seminary, please visit www.sfseminary.edu/summithouse.
