grants

The Facebook Data Center Site in Forest City, NC has announced it is accepting applications for the 2012 Community Action Grants. Pam Bunch spoke with Site Manager George Henry on Monday to discuss how organizations in Rutherford County can apply, the deadline for applications, and the types of organizations and ideas that Facebook is looking for in awarding $100,000 in grant money this year. This is the second year that Facebook/Forest City has awarded these grants, and they are very welcome in a county that has suffered severely from unemployment over the years of the recession.
