Ride program for seniors gets $10K national grant [ITNRacineCounty]

December 12, 2012

A local nonprofit that provides rides to senior citizens received a grant Tuesday worth $10,000, about a sixth of the organization’s 2011 budget.

ITNRacineCounty was awarded $10,000 from the Wal-Mart Foundation’s “12 Days of Giving” holiday campaign. The campaign will award $1.5 million to 140 organizations meeting people’s basic needs across the country. Organizations were first nominated on Facebook in November and then were reviewed by Wal-Mart associates and a Wal-Mart Foundation panel, with winners chosen from more than 21,677 nominations, according to a press release.
