The Baltimore Community Foundation on Friday announced the awarding of $100,000 in grants to 33 community projects across Baltimore County and city, including four in Greater Dundalk.
With the money, local organizations will be able to expand anti-littering, educational and arts programs.
The Dundalk Renaissance Corp. will receive $3,000 for its Don't Trash Our Dundalk campaign, according to a statement from the foundation.
The anti-litter campaign aims to clean up Dundalk while bringing neighbors together for community cleanups, door-to-door outreach, trash can giveaways and an annual resource fair.
The North Point Village Civic Association will receive $3,000 to provide the community with an additional bulk trash pickup day and to educate neighbors—through a community fair and cleanup—on rodent prevention, fire safety and laws and rules relevant to the neighborhood and its residents.
Baltimore Arts and Music Project (previously known as Project Millennium) will receive $3,500 for its The Art of Community Gathering, an arts festival in Dundalk.
The Turner Station Conservation Team will receive $4,000 to fund the Turner station National Night Out Festival and to produce and distribute to residents a civic information pamphlet.
The Baltimore Community Foundation is a private organization created by baltimore residents to serve current and future needs of the Baltimore region, according to the statement.
The organization distributed $24 million in 2012 to hundreds of nonprofit organizations in the region. BCF oversees more than 600 different charitable funds created by a diverse group of individuals, families and corporations.
