Community Chest Receives $160,300 in Funding Requests
It has been said that happiness has no price tag, but the Sewanee Civic Association (SCA) continues to put a dollar amount on their goal of improving the quality of life for all residents of the Cumberland Plateau. The Sewanee Community Chest supports local organizations that have requested basic needs funding for quality of life, community aid, children’s programs, and those beyond Sewanee that serve the entire community. With the entire community’s support, Community Chest funding will continue to provide aid where it matters most: elder care, food, books, housing, scholarships, spay/neuter programs for animals, recreational spaces and funding for the local elementary school.
The Sewanee Community Chest encourages all of you who benefit from life in the community to give generously. The Sewanee Community Chest is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations can be made by payroll deductions, credit, debit, or PayPal, either one-time or recurring. Checks may be mailed to Sewanee Community Chest, P.O. Box 99, Sewanee, TN 37375.
