Project Legacy Receives Significant Donation
November 18, 2016 – Rochester, Minn. — Karen Edmonds announced today that Project Legacy received an significant grant of $7,500.00 from Associated Bank to sustain and continue positive change made by formerly gang-involved and refugee youth.
"This grant will provide basic needs and access to educational opportunities for youth of color who struggle with a lack of hope and possibilities," said Edmonds, Project Legacy Executive Director. "This funding will provide support in the areas of housing, recreation, education and access to physical health care. This grant will help not just these youth, but generations to come."
The grant was awarded through the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee of Associated Banks.
Project Legacy is a program to meet the needs of youth of color in the Rochester Community who struggle with lack of resources and supports that enable them to reach their full potential. Many of the youth lack stable housing, a viable support system, and caring adults to advocate for them. The program targets youth who have demonstrated resilience in the face of enormous obstacles and who are sincerely motivated to change their current lifestyle.
