If you are looking for money for your community project, there is a program called, My Hometown Helper sponsored by General Mills Corporation.
Currently, no projects have been submitted from either Belmont or Mt. Holly community groups.
With all the groups selling wrapping paper and candy bars, it seems that some would be interested in applying for funding. The grant requests can be up to $15,000.
Of course, the Gastonia Police Department submitted a request for fitness equipment. Go figure, they get free food at most restaurants and convenient stores, reduced rates at the area fitness clubs, and are allowed to drive with cell phones attached to their ears — and now they NEED fitness equipment.
