Poverello Center Nominated for $50,000 PepsiRefresh Grant

by jhwygirl

Hi folks. Miss ya. Hope this post finds you happy and tanned and well-rested.

Pepsi has been sponsoring a grant program called the Pepsi Refresh Project. It started in February, and runs on a monthly cycle. There are multiple levels of grants ($5K, $25K, $50K and $250K), and they’ve got $1.3 million up for grabs this cycle. Good for Pepsi, good for communities and well-deserving non-profits everywhere.

And yeah – I’m a Pepsi gal, when I do soda. Pepsi is something I’ve been known to crave. Yum. Caffeine-free, of course.

Missoula’s Poverello Center has been nominated for a $50,000 grant. You can vote here.

In fact – save that link. Put it on your desktop. Mail it to friends.

You can vote twice a day. TWICE A DAY.

And for you haters out there – there’s a list there at that You-can-vote-here link that tells you what they intend to do with the cash – and it includes funding for MT ID cards, bus tickets and birth certificates…..all things that help homeless find jobs.

So vote. Vote early, vote often.

Thank you.

    yeah, why not squeeze a few drops from a corporation for a little local stimulus?

    • isn’t that the way it’s supposed to work, GOP style? Private sector to the rescue?

      I can’t imagine how anyone on either side of the aisle could find reason to object.
