SML Good Neighbors focuses on educational, social, and nutritional needs of children from families with limited resources in Bedford and Franklin Counties, Virginia. Since 2008, we have conducted 4-week Summer Enrichment Camps in both counties for children in grades 1-12, at no cost to their families.
If SML Good Neighbors wins, the $25,000 would fund scholarships for students in Bedford and Franklin Counties who hope to gain certification in a trade or para-profession, or who aspire to a 2- or 4-year college degree. SML Good Neighbors’ goal is to make awards of $1000 to 2 students by the end of the 2021-2022 academic year. The remaining funds will be invested with a long-term of goal of funding future scholarships through dividend earnings.
