FALLBROOK – Donations to local nonprofits totaling $17,500 were approved by the board of directors of the Angel Society of Fallbrook at its meetings in April and May.

The Fallbrook Land Conservancy was awarded $7,000 to make improvements to its historic, 125-year-old Palomares House, which is used for community meetings and events, as well as office space for the FLC. The funds will help replace the existing patio arbor, which was originally installed in the early ‘90s and is now destroyed by root rot and termites, with an industrial-grade Alumawood-style cover.

North County Serenity House, a safe home based in Escondido for women recovering from alcohol and drug dependencies, received $5,000. The funds will be used to renovate an unoccupied building to be used as an outpatient treatment space with a childcare cooperative. The project is intended to increase treatment opportunities for patients, as well as enable mothers and their children to learn and grow with each other in positive ways.

The Fallbrook Village Association received $2,000 to help fund the Town Center Revitalization Committee, a new group that collaborates with nonprofit organizations and businesses. The funding will be utilized for newsletter production, media reports, website upgrades and other community outreach projects.

Live Oak Park Coalition was awarded $2,000 towards a new shade structure and rubber mats for the park’s playground. The mats would replace the current wood chips to help lower operating costs and make the area safer for children. The partial shade structure will be placed over the east side of the playground area to shade against the hot summer sun.

The Fallbrook Beautification Alliance received $1,000 in support. The group maintains Jackie Heyneman Park, the downtown flower pots, Mission Road medians, the banks and stream bed along Pico Path, the military welcome home monument on north Mission, and the Public Art and Murals project. This summer, it will also present the 10th annual July 4th celebration at the Grand Tradition, which will include a military salute, live entertainment, food, lake races, children’s games and a fireworks show.

The FUHS boys’ volleyball team also received $500 for new uniforms.

In other business, the board approved an additional college scholarship, for a total of six scholarships valued at $3,000 each, to be awarded in June.

The Angel Society of Fallbrook raises philanthropic funds through the operation of the Angel Shop, an all-volunteer run thrift store at 1002 S. Main Ave. Donations are welcome during regular business hours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information, visit
