The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette is awarding its latest round of grants. The $102,492.65 will help five organizations with larger projects.
The Furniture Bank is buying a truck thanks to donations from several groups, including the Foundation. The organization that helps those with a housing emergency received a $20,000 grant.
The bank is run by First United Methodist Church with several nonprofits and the City of Lafayette. Volunteer Jeanne Norberg says the box truck will pick-up furniture donations and can now deliver it to people getting back on their feet.
