TCC Gives $25,000 Big Grant
Meet Our Nonprofits
A nonprofit, volunteer-based animal rescue. The “Sanctuary” is a community resource that enriches the lives of its resident animals and members of the community in an environmentally sound facility.
They would use this money towards the construction of a new cat building. The current structure that they house cats in is a small trailer that doesn’t allow them to rescue as many cats as they would like. A new building will provide improved air circulation, a quarantine room for any sick cats, and it will allow potential adopters to more easily interact with the cats to see if a particular cat is a perfect fit for their home.
Their focus is to improve the quality of life within our communities and enhance educational and economic opportunities for all African Americans.
The funds will be used for Rites of Passage Academy, domestic violence and mental health awareness, youth violence prevention, social justice and equality, voter education and participation, and the Mirror 100 program.
