Leadership Livingston teams receive $20,000 in grants from Community Foundation of Livingston County
Leadership Livingston’s adult and youth leadership teams each received $10,000 from the Community Foundation of Livingston County for projects to benefit residents.
The teams were asked to consider a variety of potential projects and to select and pitch their top choices to the Community Foundation Advisory Committee. The winning projects then selected.
The youth group project winner, Lacy’s Love Dog Biscuits, a project of Pathway School in Howell, a school for special needs children from across Livingston County. Students created a dog biscuit business in which they make, sell and distribute dog biscuits to gain business skills and employment experience. The students will use the $10,000 to develop a marketing program and website platform to expand distribution and boost mail order sales.
The adult group will map the locations of automated external defibrillator units across the county and place them were they are needed most. The project will use cutting-edge mapping technology and work with police departments and EMS units in the community. It will also raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and how to respond to it.
