Solecito Executive Director Leslie Tuohy receives a check from Glendale Mayor Jerry P. Weiers at the 2018 From the Heart grant distribution. Solecito Services loans home health care equipment for six months for a small donation. Solecito Services is at 5730 W. Peoria Ave.; call 623-876-5331.

Eighteen social service and nonprofit agencies that help Glendale’s most vulnerable members received $97,500 in grants June 28 from the city of Glendale’s From the Heart program. Distribution of funds took place at the Glendale Adult Center. This year’s grant money total is down from last year’s total of $132,000. The city is searching for a partner to match funds.
From the Heart is a unique partnership of Glendale residents, the city of Glendale and local community agencies. Since From the Heart began in 1997, more than $2.25 million has been raised and distributed to nonprofit agencies serving Glendale residents. Every From the Heart dollar stays in the Glendale community to support social service agencies that serve the city’s residents.
Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers said, “Thanks to the generosity of Glendale residents and businesses, these 18 fabulous local organizations received $97,000 to further their missions. Your donations through the city’s water bill go out to help our community in great ways. Proud of the people I serve.”
Residents can donate to the city’s nonprofit campaign to help those in need by donating $2 (or more) when they pay their water bill. For applications or to donate, visit https://www.glendaleaz.com/fromtheheart/index.cfm.
