The Youth in Philanthropy Grants Committee, comprised of Rush County high school students from Rushville Consolidated High School, Knightstown High School and Home School High Schools, recently met to review grant applications for the annual grant cycle for the Youth in Philanthropy Fund. This fund’s proceeds are to be awarded in grants to be used toward a local (Rush County) public service project and are available to any organized youth organization in Rush County.
The Girl Scouts of Central Indiana Troop #01973 received funding for use in their project to make dog beds for the local animal shelter which will assist in completing their requirements in earning the Girl Scout Bronze Star Award.
