Parks Place gets $30,000 grant for needed renovations

BELLOWS FALLS — Parks Place Community Resource Center recently received a $30,000 grant from The Thomas Thompson Trust toward facility improvements.

According to a news release, this grant will be used “to mitigate a water issue in the basement and install new flooring in the lobby, as well as sand and stain the floors in the entryway, meeting room, and living room. These critical improvements will keep Parks Place thriving for many years to come.”

The Thomas Thompson Trust makes grants to not-for-profit organizations that provide health and social services to individuals living in and around Brattleboro. It is one of the oldest charitable foundations in the United States, and has been making grants for more than a century.

Parks Place describes itself as “a powerful vehicle for concrete action, helping individuals and families make better lives for themselves through its network of social service agencies. Our mission has and continues to be connecting families with the support they need. We believe in equity and accessibility for all.”

Parks Place will be closed Monday through Friday, June 26–30 and Aug. 7–11, for the facility work. During closure, call 211 for any questions regarding social services. For those in need of diapers, extras will be distributed the week before the scheduled closures. For more information, call 802-463-9927.
