  • Tool Library Grant- Please Vote!
    The Tool Library was recently selected as a finalist for a grant that will go towards the next Bed Blitz. The grant itself is the Bernzomatic Find Your Fire Grant!!! The winner of this grant will receive $15,000 towards their community aid project (aka The Bed Blitz) and a visit from Nicole Curtis (Rehab Addict). HOWEVER, the only way we can win this grant is by getting the most votes out of all the finalists.  We believe our Benjamin Community has a strong voice and can help us get the votes we need!  Please share with others either through email or other social media outlets.

    Every user can vote once a day from December 1st through December 31st, 2016 (and even more if you use a different source of internet (like voting on a Starbucks wifi connection, and then voting at home or school internet). Please vote as often as possible.

    To vote:

    1) Click here.
    2) Click vote on The Bed Blitz project. 

    It's that simple! Think about how many beds we can build for the children of Bloomington/Normal with $15,000... (it's over 100)
