Local classroom given grant through Tools for Schools


Augusta (WQOW) - A program to give classrooms a lift is back for a second year.

A Tools for Schools grant was awarded in Augusta on Wednesday.

Last year was the first for Tools for Schools.  It's a partnership between RCU and WQOW News 18 to support classrooms in need of a financial boost to get a project off the ground.  At Augusta Elementary, mold has caused a lot of problems in recent years.  Many desks had to be thrown out.  A local college donated desks, but classrooms were still without organizers for folders and books.  One grant in the spring helped pay for some.  A second grant presented by RCU on Wednesday will pay for more organizers.

Next month, another area classroom will receive a grant.  To apply for a $300 award, click here.
