The Alston-Beech Foundation (ABF) recently awarded more than $20,000 to local non-profits at the bi-annual meeting and luncheon of the “Consortium of Cecil B. Moore” organizations. Non-profits that were recognized have shown considerable efforts to compliment and foster revitalization efforts in the Cecil B. Moore community.

“The holiday seasons are a great time to remember the work of non-profits and their selflessness to support underserved communities,” states Kenneth Scott, President of Beech Companies. “These donations play a huge role to help these non-profits continue the work they are doing – especially important as we prepare to celebrate the holiday season.”

The funds presented to non-profits will be used for a variety of senior, educational, corridor development and science programs. This includes the Urban Affairs Coalition, Smith Memorial Playground and Grands and Parents.
