People to People receives Community Projects grant - Food Pantry, Senior Center allowed alternate uses

Fallbrook People to People Services was allocated $1,279 in District 5 Community Projects funding during the September 15 San Diego County Board of Supervisors meeting.

The supervisors’ 5-0 vote also allowed two other Fallbrook organizations to use past Community Projects funding for alternate uses.

The grant to People to People will reimburse the organization for moving costs. The Fallbrook Senior Citizens Center will be permitted to purchase a golf cart and provide insurance for the center’s entire fleet for one year and the Fallbrook Food Pantry will be able to purchase groceries for needy families.

People to People was founded in 1981 and is a nonprofit organization which assists the elderly, incapacitated and other needy individuals with affordable housing, home care and general employment.

The organization is led by volunteers who provide services free of charge, and over the past 28 years Fallbrook People to People Services has helped more than 12,000 individuals.

The Community Projects grant will cover the costs the organization incurred by moving to its new location.

In September 2007 the county supervisors approved a $30,000 Community Projects grant to the Senior Citizens Center to purchase a minivan.

The September 2009 action allows the funds to be used to purchase a golf cart, along with insurance for the Senior Center’s fleet.

In June 2009 the supervisors approved $10,000 of Community Projects funds for the Food Pantry’s Thanksgiving Walk fundraiser. The approval of the amendment allows the grant to be used to purchase groceries for needy families.
