FALLS CITY — High school and middle school sports teams in Falls City will soon be donning new uniforms thanks to a grant through the Portland Trail Blazers.
Falls City will receive $2,000 to buy new uniforms through the grant. The district is working to determine which teams will benefit.
“A needs assessment will be completed in order to see where the funds will go,” said Falls City High School physical education teacher Emily Kenagy, who applied for the grant.
On Monday, Kenagy and a group of five students will be heading to the Moda Center, the Blazers home court, to accept the grant.
The grant is through Trail Blazers Foundation’s Take it to the Court for Education program, sponsored by Wells Fargo.
This year $100,000 in grants went to 20 schools in Oregon.
