Foundation awards grant for child care

Thursday, January 14, 2021

PacifiCorp Foundation, a nonprofit arm of Pacific Power, has donated to the city of Astoria’s Parks and Recreation department.

The $4,500 grant is to help the Lil’ Sprouts Academy relocate and expand so it can provide child care during the pandemic for health workers, emergency personnel and other critical workers.

The foundation awarded 44 grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 to nonprofit groups in six states, much of it to support the arts.

“Local programs like these are the heartbeat of our North Coast area, providing connection, education and tradition and helping to heal and strengthen our communities,” said Alisa Dunlap, Pacific Power’s regional business manager for the North Coast.

Pacific Power also has programs set up to help those struggling to pay utility bills. For more information, call 888-221-7070.
