Worthing Fire Department received $1000 from the Lennox Area Community Fund (LACF). The grant money will go toward the purchase of new structure gloves.
This year, the LACF was able to award $12,300 to area organizations to help fund 12 different projects.
The LACF, which began in 2004, is an endowment fund created to benefit the Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing communities by pooling the generosity of donors to fund grants to charitable and civic causes.
