C.A.R.E.S. summer program receives $10,000 grant

The KBK Foundation, based in Garfield, recently awarded a $10,000 grant to The Center that C.A.R.E.S., which runs a summer enrichment program for children and teenagers in the Hill District. The grant was awarded to offset the expense of some 20 children from Garfield Commons who are participating in the summer program this year. In past years, the Garfield children participated in a summer program run by the Pittsburgh Public Schools, but when funding for that program was cut this year, an alternative program was needed.
