A total of 41 Pennsylvania organizations will benefit this spring from $264,300 in funding from Williams through the company’s semiannual Atlantic Sunrise Community Grant program. Williams awarded up to $10,000 to eligible organizations in communities where the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project is currently being constructed.
One of the 41 recipients is the Borough of Montrose in Susquehanna County, which will use its $5,000 grant to make local park improvements.
“With Williams’ financial support we are going to be making much-needed improvements to Memorial Park,” said Councilman Craig Reimel. “These improvements will increase the park’s usability and ensure it remains a safe place for the entire community.”
Another recipient is the Shamokin Coal Township Public Library in Northumberland County, which will use a grant for $6,000 to support educational STEM programming.
“We plan to use the support from Williams’ community grant to help fund educational programs that will be held at the Shamokin Coal Township Public Library,” said Victoria Ryan, Shamokin Public Library Director. “We are excited about this grant because we know our community will greatly benefit from the new educational programming.”
