Grant will fund baseball uniforms, equipment
Beacon Junior Baseball is receiving a $20,000 grant for equipment, uniforms and concession-stand upgrades.
The league is one of 20 nonprofit organizations sharing $328,740 in the latest round of awards from Dutchess County’s Learn, Play, Create: Supporting Our Kids grant program. It organizes teams for children between 4 and 12 years old.
The Mount Gulian Society in Fishkill is also receiving $20,000, which will be used to buy an Amish-style dormer shed to host school and youth programming and store educational equipment and supplies.
