The Wichita Community Foundation has awarded $1,500 to St. Anthony Family Shelter, the foundation said Monday in a news release.
The money was awarded to help replace food lost as a result of a power outage from a storm June 27. The shelter, part of Catholic Charities, used the food to feed children out of school for the summer.
The foundation was able to tap into funds reserved specifically for nonprofit organizations affected by emergencies or natural disasters.
St. Anthony Family Shelter is taking additional donations of food. For information about donating, contact Erica Davis at 316-264-7233.
