Nonprofit View: Community Foundation of Carroll County making a difference, with scholarships, homeschool center, more
Some of you, dear readers, will remember a time, not so long ago, when summers were lazy, hazy and slow. There seemed to be an endless string of days at the beach or the mountains, or Grandma’s house. Not so anymore.
Not so, especially here at the Community Foundation of Carroll County, where some amazing things are happening. We are wrapping up the 2019 scholarship season (168 scholarships awarded so far) with a reprise for the 4-H & Future Farmers of America Fair(with 22 scholarships awarded). God bless you and thank you to all our donors who make all this possible.
For almost a year now, a dedicated group of people have been working with the Community Foundation to create a Homeschool Resource Center for Carroll County, and on Tuesday, July 16 it became a reality. Located at 25 Union St., third floor, the center will be open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The phone number for the center is 410-725-2390, and the email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are very grateful for the many generous homeschool families in Carroll County who have donated curricula, manipulatives, textbooks, and books of general interest. The center will offer courses to parents who are new to homeschooling along with networking opportunities with the goal of working together to offer courses a little out of their wheelhouse. The center is also equipped with a printer, book binder and many other office tools and supplies.
