ORANGE — A local organization with a history of assisting the community of Orange is now accepting applications for its annual Community Needs program.

The Service League of Orange is currently accepting applications for its Community Needs Committee to encourage projects and events which promote and benefit the entire Orange County area.

Verification of a non-profit 501-c3 status must accompany the Community Needs application.

“The funds we raised from our Follies event earlier this year are used for grants to assist local organizations who do things to help the people of Orange County or promote Orange County,” said Carolyn Lemons of the Service League of Orange. “We have more than $20,000 available for grants this year.”

In 2010, the Service League of Orange provided grants to several organizations which benefited the Orange County community, such as OCARC, Orange Christian Services, CASA, Greater Orange Area Literacy Service, Habitat for Humanity, Orange Community Players, the Garth House, the Rainbow Room, the Heritage House Museum and more.

Applications may be obtained by calling Carolyn Lemons at 409-670-1839 or Pat Jordan at 409-886-1795. The deadline to submit applications is Friday, Oct. 1.
