Poverello Center Competes Nationally for $10K Grant

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The Poverello Center is asking for the public's vote in the race to win a $10,000 grant for the organization's new facility on Broadway.

A company called Tom's of Maine is investing $150,000 in nonprofit causes across the country through their "50 States of Good" program, and the Poverello Center was chosen to represent Montana.

The fifteen finalists win $10,000, and officials at the Pov said that cash would help pay for their new emergency shelter and soup kitchen.

Eran Fowler-Pehan, Executive Director of the Poverello Center, said, "A lot of our supporters and donors can't write a check and this is one way that they can give, we have about five more days to vote, and people can vote once a day on 50statesforgood.com."

The Pov is working to raise a remaining $300,000 to reach their fundraising goal of $1.6 million for the new shelter.
