CRIVITZ — The Crivitz Area Woman’s Club (CAWC) reported its continued partnership with the M&M Area Community Foundation (MMACF) by receiving a $1,500 grant from the Youth Field of Interest Fund held at the MMACF. MMACF grant funding is made available through the contributions of local donors through endowments established and managed by the MMACF to support local nonprofit organizations and provide scholarships.

The $1,500 grant will support a Book Giveaway program in the Crivitz School District. This program purchases books for early childhood through third-grade students to keep as their own. School personnel select and order the books to meet the needs of their students. The book giveaway occurs two or three times during the school year as determined by the school. CAWC members assist during the giveaway to help the students find appropriate books.

As a service organization, the Crivitz Area Woman’s Club holds multiple fundraisers each year in order to provide funding to area schools, charities and organizations.
