The Foundation is now accepting applications for the UniBank September 11th Emergency Personnel Education Fund. This fund, created in 2002 by Unibank for Savings is in honor of the everyday heroes who responded to the September 11th tragedy. The Foundation welcomes grant proposals from local emergency personnel for support that help them purchase critical equipment and/or provide training and education. Preference is given to those departments that collaborate across communities.
Organizations that deploy emergency service teams in the towns of the Blackstone Valley: Millbury, Grafton, Northbridge, Upton, Hopedale, Mendon, Blackstone, Millville, Uxbridge, Douglas and Sutton are encouraged to apply. Grant awards do not typically exceed $1,000.
