There is a lot to be excited about here at Blossom as we ring in the New Year! I am excited to announce that the Columbus Foundation has awarded us a $42,000 grant! This is huge for Blossom and we cannot thank the Columbus Foundation enough for their consideration of our proposal for this grant.
With the help of the Columbus Foundation we will be bringing our camps to Columbus this summer! This grant will provide us with the funds to secure space, develop our curriculum, help others join our mission, and of course empower many more young girls to explore STEM. Bringing Blossom to Columbus marks the expansion of our summer camps in 3 cities. Now the young girls of Columbus will be able to take part in our program designed specifically for them.
With expansion comes opportunity and to those in the Cincinnati, Buffalo, and Columbus areas, we will be looking for interns, volunteers, and other support. If you or anyone you know would be interested in an opportunity with Blossom reach out to us and we will be happy to match up available opportunities!
As we bring in the New Year with all of the excitement of expansion, I want to thank you all for your support. Impact and change does not happen overnight and it requires the use of all skills and backgrounds. Spreading the word of our mission is critical as well as volunteering and donations. Here at Blossom we appreciate all that you do and hope that your New Year will be the best yet.
