The Rotary Club of Evanston distributed $10,000 in grants toward addressing the problem of violence in Evanston.

Grants of up to $2,500 were distributed to Evanston organizations addressing violence in the community through innovative programs: Literature for All of Us, Family Focus, YWCA Evanston/North Shore, James B. Moran Center for Youth Advocacy/Evanston Police Department and Youth Organizations Umbrella (Y.O.U.)

"We were delighted by the number of applications we received for our grants and were impressed by the quality and creativity of the various applicants who are addressing this serious issue facing Evanston," said Ada Kahn, president of the club. "All our recipients are to be commended for their outstanding work."

Applicants were asked to submit programming ideas that discourage violence in general, such as programs aimed at reducing gang activity, youth bullying, adult violent crime or domestic violence or those that aim generally at building more peaceful communities through better understanding and greater tolerance.
