Interfaith Council Supports American Legion Youth

By Jay Sparkman

 

The Sun City Center Interfaith Social Action Council recently presented a $2,500 grant to American Legion Post 246 for the purpose of financing four registrations for Florida Boys State and two registrations for the Florida Youth Law Cadet Academy. The students will be chosen from Lennard HS and East Bay High School.

The SCC Interfaith Council uses monies from the sale of donated goods at the Nearly New Shop in Sun City Center Plaza to fund grants and scholarships in the South Shore area. For more information go to www.InterfaithCouncilofSunCityCenter.com or call 813.642.9099.
