Target awards another grant to Lindale ISD Education Foundation

LINDALE, TX (KLTV) - Released by the Lindale ISD:

LINDALE, TX - Target continued its support for the education of Lindale children by awarding another grant to the Lindale ISD Education Foundation.

Target presented the Foundation with $2,500 for early childhood literacy and art projects. In 2009, Target also donated $2,500 to the Foundation for arts projects.

The Lindale ISD Education Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that provides grants to teachers for innovative classroom projects. Projects funded by the Foundation must go above and beyond the normal classroom curriculum and enhance the academic performance of Lindale students. These projects have not been funded or have been under-funded by the school district's operating budget.

"We are so very grateful Target has awarded our Foundation with another grant," Foundation Executive Director Maya Bethany said. "The Target Distribution Center employs a large number of Lindale ISD graduates as well as parents of LISD students. Their grant further acknowledges the quality education Lindale students receive and we are so happy they would like to see that level of excellence continued."
