Healthy Learners receives inaugural Community Enrichment Grant from Junior League of Columbia

In celebration of its 90th anniversary, the Junior League of Columbia (JLC) recently announced its first community enrichment grant program recipients. Healthy Learners, which is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, is among the organizations receiving the grants from the JLC.

Overall, more than 25 nonprofits in the Midlands submitted proposals for grants to help serve children. JLC awarded a total of $160,000 in one-time enrichment grants to seven local nonprofits supporting the JLC mission, vision or current focus area of healthy children. JLC President Carla Moore made check presentations to the recipients during the JLC’s first general membership meeting of 2014.

“As we begin our 90th anniversary, we are proud and honored to fund these incredible community initiatives that demonstrate our mission of voluntarism and positively impacting our community,” said Moore.

Healthy Learners will use the funds to increase basic health care for more than 650 children living in the Midlands.
