Honey Creek Wind and Apex Clean Energy are excited to award another round of grants to Crawford County organizations. These funds support organizations and projects related to community development, the environment, education, and health & recreation in and around Crawford County. Projects Inc. has been awarded a grant of $8,745. The funding will be used to purchase and plant 53 more trees around the Crawford County fairgrounds. This will provide shade for 4-H youth and the thousands of visitors to the county fair each year. The fairgrounds also holds other various events throughout the year which means even more guests to the fairgrounds will be benefiting from the shade provided by these trees. Projects, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit support organization of The Community Foundation for Crawford County and dedicated to being instrumental in making various community ideas around Crawford County become a reality.

The G1 Rescue Air II system is a breathing air bottle and connections that can be rapidly deployed in case of an emergency. If a firefighter runs out of air, or their SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) should fail before he or she is able to exit the hazardous air conditions, this G1 system can be deployed. This is a quick way to get extra air to someone who may be trapped or in a compromised situation. For more information, visit facebook.com/LykensVFD. The Honey Creek Wind team works hard to be strong community partner. Supporting organizations like this through our community grant program is one way that we can contribute to pressing community needs, help enrich lives, and make a meaningful impact at the local level.
