PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A local company is offering $50,000 in grants to schools and non-profit organizations for environmental sustainability projects. The deadline for applications is Saturday.
SCA Corporation is a global leader in paper towel, toilet tissue and other hygiene products. But the company also has a strong commitment to the environment. SCA’s Diane Spengler explains it’s grant program:
“The SCA grant program offers grants to two groups: schools from levels K-through-12, and also 501-c3 non profit organizations. We’re looking for their sustainability ideas. ”
Applications can be accessed at SCA.com/en/us. The deadline is Saturday, November 14, but Spengler says it only takes about 15 minutes to fill out the application. At least four schools in the region received grants last year for projects like vertical gardening and school wide recycling.
