Nonprofit Special Angels of The Woodlands was awarded a $2,500 grant Dec. 9 with the help of students from Lone Star College Montgomery, according to a press release. Students in an English class worked in groups representing five local nonprofits to research and develop a presentation on each nonprofit's needs and challenges. Special Angels of The Woodlands acts as a day activity center for adults with intellectual disabilities.

Executive Director Dea Taylor of Special Angels of The Woodlands thanked the students for their positive collaborations with the nonprofit.


“They were enthusiastic and motivated to learn about our organization and how they can make a difference for our clients and community," Taylor said. "We recognize that these students have a bright future ahead of them!”

The other nonprofits were Habitat for Humanity, Healing with Love, All Ears and the Montgomery County Assistance League. According to the press release, Lone Star College provided the grant with funding from Sequent Energy and the campus Rotaract Club.
