LAWRENCE, KANSAS - SparkWheel is pleased to announce it has received a $4,000 Momentum Grant from the Douglas County Community Foundation. Funding from this grant will support the students that SparkWheel is currently serving at Prairie Park Elementary School.

Program materials encompass a wide range of resources, including textbooks, learning aids, and interactive tools that foster a love for learning and nurture academic growth.
