Do you have a group, project or program that makes Linden Hills a better place to live, work and play? Consider applying for LHiNC’s Neighborhood Grants program. We award up to $1,000 to groups, organizations or projects that improve our community.
As an example of a funded project, in fall 2021, LHiNC awarded $1,000 to Lake Harriet Community School (LHCS) for books that address diversity and an additional $1,000 for books for Lake Harriet’s sister school Nellie Stone Johnson (NSJ).
Each school added dozens of books to their media centers.The media specialists made displays of the books, read the books with students and talked with teachers about them. “Bringing stories with more diverse characters and themes into our schools is so important for building diversity awareness and having thoughtful discussions about the ways in which we are all similar and different” said, Anna Leither, grant applicant and LHCS PTA president.
