GREENSBORO, N.C. — To prevent cuts in services, the Joseph M. Bryan Foundation in Greensboro has given $50,000 in emergency grants to programs funded by United Way of Greater Greensboro.
The foundation is giving $10,000 to the education and support program of The Arc of Greensboro, $25,000 to Family Service of the Piedmont and $15,000 to the sickle cell services program of the Sickle Cell Disease Association.
A committee was created to review seven requests, totaling $115,281, from a grant program the foundation created at United Way to support human services. Priority was given to programs that could close or be forced to reduce vital services if funds were not restored.
