As part of its annual effort to help local charities, three organizations will each receive $250 from the Greater Calumet Area USBC.
Haven House of Hammond, Fair Haven Center for Women in Highland, and the St. Joe's Soup Kitchen in Hammond were selected by the local bowling association’s charitable giving committee as this year’s award winners.
"We believe that the three organizations embrace the spirit of hope and the commitment to help people who are in need," said Mike Kozy, of Griffith, GCA USBC president. "These small donations will be used to improve our community, whether it is in helping a woman who has been abused or by helping to feed a family. We're proud to help and applaud the passion of each organization.."
The committee chose the three organizations based on recommendations from bowlers and research conducted by the committee, which was chaired by Bettye Abram, of Chicago, the GCA USBC's 3rd vice president.
