We have currently partnered with the Town of Greenville and Greenville Public Schools to build a new facility on school grounds that will house a new childcare center with space for 70 children and 2 age appropriate playgrounds. This project will also include a new recreation center for the town, featuring an education classroom, kitchen with concession stand as well as an onsite gym and 2 new preschool classrooms with a playground.
We are thrilled to announce that our Federal Appropriations Funding Request was accepted. Through the support of Senator Susan Collins, the Foundation was awarded $1,561,000 for the project. This money will be given to the Town of Greenville, who will over see the building construction. Additionally we will be applying for a state grant opportunity being awarded for new child care center construction in Maine. The remaining funding will be sought through community fundraising events.
