Creative Community Concepts, Dymocks Children’s Charities, LINC, Lithgow High School, Lithgow PCYC and Thrive Services are the latest recipients of nearly $30,000 in community grants from EnergyAustralia Mt Piper.
The power station’s Community Grants program supports community projects and initiatives within the Lithgow region that are focused on improving education, social inclusion, regional sport and recreation.
EnergyAustralia’s Head of Mt Piper, Steve Marshall, said his team is excited to be funding four worthy new initiatives.
“These grants are a favourite of everyone here at Mt Piper, enabling us to support and connect with the community where we live and work.
“Our people love that our grant to Lithgow High School enabled it to be part of the Solar Car Challenge, providing students with solar model car kits and helping them learn about renewable energy in the process.”
EnergyAustralia’s grant to LINC supported its Mums and Bubs Connection Group. While the funding provided to Dymocks Children’s Charities meant it could add new books to the libraries at Portland Central and St Joseph’s Portland schools.
These are Mt Piper’s second round of grants for 2022, with Blinky Bill Early Learning in Portland, LINC, Meadow Flat Public School, St Joseph’s School in Portland, STEMworks and the Lithgow Valley Regional Science Hub sharing in nearly $30,000 in funding earlier this year.
Each year Mt Piper provides around $130,000 in community grants and sponsorships.
