VIB to award $5,000 grant to CAP Council

April 17, 2001

The Imperial County Child Abuse Prevention Council will be the recipient of a $5,000 grant from Valley Independent Bank.

The presentation of the check will be at the council's open house from 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at 563 W. Main St. in El Centro.

The donation from VIB is given in support of the council's efforts in Imperial County's outlying communities, including Calipatria, Heber, Westmorland and Winterhaven.

Programs that will be assisted include "Road to Wisdom" and "Teen Talk," which are designed to help families learn about how to resolve conflicts and help children learn how to make appropriate choices when dealing with the wide range of issues.
