By Upstate Institute on September 1, 2006

In 2006-2007, the Student Philanthropy Council made four awards:

  • $5,000 to the Utica-based Thea Bowman House Kids with Promise project, providing after-school programs and support for junior high and high school students who do not qualify for county Department of Social Services child care subsidies.
  • $2,200 to the Hamilton Food Cupboard, which worked with an area farm to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to more than 100 families.
  • $1,800 to Utica’s Adult Learning Center, which used photography to tell the story of refugees settling in central New York.
  • $1,000 to the Sherburne-Earlville School Community/School Connections for Literacy Success project, funding a traveling tutor and creating literacy bags with books, puppets, puzzles, crayons, clay, scissors, and paper for incoming kindergarten students.
