CTEC Operation Round-Up grants awarded to organizations, church and local family

Recently, the CTEC Operation Round-Up Board of Directors approved several grants for local community organizations, as well as a family in need. A $3,000 grant was awarded to the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fredericksburg, which provides simple, decent and affordable housing for people in need. Their goal is to eliminate substandard housing by building and promoting high quality, affordable housing. The non-profit program has started construction on house #17, which is their first outside of the city limits.

Another grant, in the amount of $2,00, was gifted to the Friends of the Kingsland Library. With a large population over the age of 65 in the Kingsland area, the Friends of the Kingsland Library want to ensure there is a vast selection of large print books available for this portion of the community. This contribution offsets the amount needed to purchase these large print books and in turn invest in the enrichment of these seniors' lives.

ASPCA® awards grant to San Saba County Friends of Animalselbows

San Saba County Friends of Animals is thrilled to announce that the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) has awarded us a grant of $2,500 to help cover the cost of some much-needed surgery for one of our foster dogs, Sophie. A terrier mix who has been with us since August of last year, Sophie has severe ligament damage in both of her knees and needs the surgery to stabilize her hind  legs. Thanks to this generous award by Lil BUB’s Big Fund for the ASPCA, we now have sufficient funds to cover a little over half of the anticipated cost of the procedure.

We are so grateful to the ASPCA for helping us help Sophie!
