The Town of Fountain Hills, AZ has been awarded a $10,000 grant to further charitable work in the community through the “Make a Difference Day” program. The town has sponsored the annual largest day of volunteerism for five years with an average of 300 volunteers coming together to serve residents in need. Projects have included building wheelchair ramps, gates and fences, deep cleaning, landscaping and minor home repairs to those residents without resources who most often are elderly and home-bound. The Town Council of Fountain Hills has selected the local Noon Kiwanis organization to receive the grant monies in order to complete their Centennial Project – a replacement of a children’s 20+ -year-old playground in Golden Eagle Park. Make a Difference Day Coordinator, Heather Ware, and IT Administrator, Mike Ciccarone, will travel to Washington D.C. May 5th to accept the check and participate in an honorary luncheon as guests of USA TODAY, Newman’s Own, and the Gannett Corporation. There will be an official recognition of the award at the May 21st Town Council meeting held at 6:30 p.m. in the Town Hall Council Chambers.
