Friends of Northville District Library
Posted By: Linda Schwelnus (July 20, 2021)
The Friends of Northville District Library promote, support, and enhance the services of the Library.
We want to create a more welcoming environment for families/individuals on the autism spectrum by creating/installing a core board for communication. This low-tech but cutting-edge tool will allow non-verbal people to more freely communicate with caregivers/library staff, and access to the library and its services for people of all abilities is improved.
The 5’x3’ board would contain some library-specific terms (book, check-out, etc.) and would be accessible to all. Also, a smaller board for the Youth bathroom, hand-held boards for use while in the library, and several sensory kits for check-out are requested. These kits include a variety of visual, tactile, and auditory toys that can be used by kids, teens, and adults. Kits may include fidgets, used to soothe or distract agitated kids or as a fun sensory break or reward.
WAZA TRACK CLUB

Dear Selection Committee,
Please accept this nomination for Waza Track Club for your Summer of Sharing award. The club has been a safe place for our kids to remain active and practice with their friends, which has been especially helpful during covid times. All of the coaches volunteer their time on a daily basis to train our children, help build confidence, winning state and national awards, and creating long lasting friendships. Past athletes therefore come back to volunteer train the little ones. On a personal level, it has helped my daughter find her passion for track and field, and has allowed her to safely discover her strengths and appreciation for the sport.
Your award would help support our athletes in this year's national competitions.
Thank you for your consideration.

Lewiston Family Ministry Food Pantry is a 501c3 under the Full Gospel Assembly of God in Atlanta. Food is available to families in need in Montmorency and surrounding counties. This donation would be huge in purchasing additional food for the pantry. There are all types of food, fresh frozen, dairy, canned given out when available. This program promotes healthy eating and community fellowship and is based on income eligibility. Being nominated for this would be a great boost for this organization.

Lightning Robotics has been a great impact in our community pre-pandemic and throughout the pandemic. Students learn how to work together and bring others together with their love of science. During the pandemic some students used their 3D printing skills that they learned in robotics to create items to assist health care workers. They are also very creative in finding ways to engage younger students. It is nice to have a group of students who are grounded and always looking for ways to help others out in the community.
