PACE Center for Girls to receive millions
PACE Center for Girls was selected in a national competition to identify programs with the potential to help more of America's at risk youth reach productive adulthood
Florida's PACE Center for Girls has been awarded a three-year investment of $3.5 million from the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation and the federal Social Innovation Fund. This investment will enable PACE Center for Girls to provide more services to more girls in Florida, conduct a rigorous study of effectiveness and cost benefit over time, and create a platform for becoming the national model for what works with teen-aged girls who want to turn their lives in a positive direction.
To fully implement its growth and evaluation plans, and satisfy federal matching requirements, PACE needs to raise an additional $2.5 million.
The statewide PACE Center for Girls organization was chosen for this award in an open, national competition that drew 191 applications from leading nonprofits across the country.
The Lake Club to receive energy efficiency award
LAKEWOOD RANCH -- Symbiont Service Corp. will present an energy efficiency award to The Lake Club at Lakewood Ranch at The Lake Club Clubhouse on Tuesday at 2 p.m. after it installed a Symbiont geothermal pool heating system
The energy efficient system was installed to heat the adult and children's pools because the geothermal system is 70% more efficient than conventional pool heating and cooling methods. The system is designed to maintain the pool water temperature between 84 and 87 degrees while reducing the Lakewood Ranch carbon footprint and providing significant savings over the lifetime of the equipment.
Symbiont Service founder, Roy King, developed and manufactured the geothermal temperature control system in the early 80s and sold the manufacturing division in 1990 because of its prolific growth.
