Some non-profits are getting a nice boost to start off the new year. The United Way of Greater Augusta dished out grants to six different non-profit organizations.
Earlier this year, the United Way posted ads in the paper to apply for the grant. To earn the one-time grant, non-profits must address community needs outside the lines of Waynesboro and Staunton.
Recipients of the grants include The Boys and Girls Club of Augusta for $1,100, Computer Redistribution Center for $670, God's Place Massey Haven for $900, Valley Music Academy for $750, Valley Program for the Aging Services for $900, and the Wilson Volunteer Fire Company for $1,400.
The United Way says the grants are a great way to better serve the entire community in Augusta County.
