The Sundt Foundation awarded $10,000 in grants to five North Texas nonprofits during its third-quarter disbursement, the foundation said in a news release.
“It’s rewarding to see how these organizations are making a positive impact within North Texas,” said Elizabeth Harvey, the Sundt Foundation’s North Texas board member. “Our employee-owners are grateful to be able to support each of their missions.”
Grants for the third quarter include:
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital received $3,000 to care for children with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP). Their specialized clinic seeks to improve the diagnosis, management and treatment of HSP among children.
Grapevine Relief and Community Exchange received $3,000 to support the increased demand for their food pantry, which continues to provide meals for those in need during the pandemic.
