September 10, 2020 - The Shelby County Children’s Advocacy Center received a grant in the amount of $20,000 from T.L.L. Temple Foundation for general operating expenses over the next year. T.L.L. Temple Foundation recognizes that the pandemic has impacted many businesses. This is especially true for nonprofits, which depend on grants, donations, and fundraisers to cover the cost of operations. This grant is a tremendous benefit to the SCCAC as we work to meet the needs of child victims of abuse and neglect in our community.
The T.L.L. Temple Foundation works alongside families and communities to build a thriving Deep East Texas and to alleviate poverty, creating access and opportunities for all. In support of its mission, the foundation makes grants in the areas of education, economic development and community revitalization, health, human services, arts and culture, and conservation and the environment.
