ALTON — The Alton Community Service League is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations interested in applying for monetary grants.
Forms are available by contacting Joanne Lenhardt at (618) 462-3208, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mailing a request to P.O. Box 211, Alton, IL 62002. Completed forms must be postmarked by March 15. Grant recipients will be announced in May.
The league raises funds each year for both Alton area beautification and nonprofit organizations through its annual gift wrap project and other fundraising events. League members wish to thank the Riverbend community for supporting the gift wrap booth in December at Alton Square Mall. In its 38th year, proceeds were approximately $5,000.
The league’s next activity involving the community is a Preview Party Wednesday, March 9, at Alton Little Theater. Tickets for this special production of “The Foreigner” may be purchased from any league member for $20. Admission price includes refreshments.
