Arts center gets funding to help Muncy students

The Community Arts Center recently announced it has been awarded a $2,500 grant from the Waldron Memorial Fund of the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania, according to a news release.

These funds will go toward the 2020-21 education series program at the center, specifically to assist Muncy School District students to attend educational series shows.

The educational series is offered free to students and serves nine school districts in Lycoming and Sullivan counties. All costs related to the program, including artists’ fees, technical labor and busing are absorbed by the Community Arts Center.

“Many young people do not have the opportunity to experience the arts live, making the series an essential part of their education beyond the classroom,” Ana Gonzalez-White, Community Arts Center development director, said, according to the news release.

The foundation works to improve the quality of life in north central Pennsylvania through community leadership, the promotion of philanthropy, the strengthening of nonprofit impact and the perpetual stewardship of charitable assets, according to the news release. The foundation strives to create powerful communities through passionate giving.

“This type of support from the foundation is crucial for the sustainability of the educational series,” Chuck Still, Community Arts Center executive director, said, according to the news release.

The Community Arts Center provides exceptional arts and entertainment for the community through programming that is appropriate to the diverse interests and needs of the regional audience it serves.
