The Carbon County Community Foundation is thrilled to announce that new funds have been established to support the important work of two organizations in the county.

The Carbon County Catholic Worker organization provides charitable services in Carbon County, including:

  • food pantry services
  • educational services
  • spiritual counseling
  • culture events.

Carbon County Catholic Worker recently purchased the Our Lady of Angels Academy and the neighboring St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church in Lansford and has plans to convert it into a Dorothy Day House of Hospitality and a new Community Center.  The Carbon County Catholic Worker Fund will support the programs and operating costs of that venture.

The Kidder Hike and Bike Trail Fund supports the development and maintenance of the recreation trail connecting Big Boulder Lake Drive and Lake Harmony Road in Kidder Township.  The completed part of the trail is 1/3 mile long, 12 feet wide, and handicap accessible with its flat, crushed stone surface. There are plans to continue through the mountains’ beautiful, wooded areas to provide easy access to public areas.

The Kidder Hike & Bike Trail Group is comprised of volunteers who raise funds, recruit other volunteers, and help the township build the trail system.

More information about these or any of the existing funds at Carbon County Community Foundation can be found here.

Establishing your own fund is easy and takes less time than opening a bank account.  There are several different types to choose from based on your charitable interests and philanthropic goals.  The Carbon County Community Foundation staff can work with you to determine the best option.
