The group voted to award $500 to A Precious Child for the acquisition of new and lightly used sports equipment. Their program will benefit children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The board agreed, recreation does fall within the health guidelines and we felt good about funding something which could ideally be used for several years. We hoped that in addition to reaching a large number of kids, the new equipment will foster team building and other positive benefits commonly associated with physical activity.
