Hendricks County Gives raises nearly $23,000 in launch of online program

(Continued)

AVON —

The initial projects from which donors could choose during the matching funds launch, and the total amounts committed so far, are the Hendricks  County Arts Council ($2,950), the Cartlidge Barn Project ($12,012), the One Room Schoolhouse ($1,723), Hendricks County Senior Services ($2,738), Hendricks County Parks and Recreation ($2,421), and the United Way’s Early Readers Club ($453).

The Hendricks County Arts Council’s Art in the Streets project is the development of a creative mural on the Gallery on the Square brick wall facing U.S. 36 in downtown Danville.

The Cartlidge Barn Project is working to rebuild a barn that’s nearly 180 years old on the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds, and restore and maintain the structure as a historical and educational farm experience for people of all ages. It will be used for public and private events.

Located in Pittboro, the One Room Schoolhouse is a genuine, refurbished one-room schoolhouse. Here, children (and adults) visit to learn about history and what it was like to attend school a century ago.  The building has a long list of much-needed repairs.

Hendricks County Senior Services supports the county’s Senior Services Transportation Program, which provides door-to-door transportation to persons 60 years and older residing in the county who need transportation within the county.

Hendricks County Parks and Recreation requested funding for new educational displays at McCloud Nature Park.  Innovative and exciting educational displays are needed to enhance visitors’ understanding of the environment and establish a personal link with nature, a link that is increasingly difficult to establish with the youngest members of the community.

The United Way’s Early Readers Club helps support parents and child-caregivers in helping children become confident and skilled readers by the time they start school. Families can register to receive 12 high-quality children’s books each year until the child’s sixth birthday, providing countless opportunities for children and parents to read together.
