TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - It takes a community to properly educate children.
That's why one local board stepped up to do its part.
The Vigo County Education Foundation held "Business for Bagels."
It took place at Lost Creek Elementary School in Terre Haute.
During the meeting, board members gave out more than $40,000 in grants to Vigo County schools.
Local businesses and community members helped contribute to those grants.
"Those grants will potentially impact near 9,000 students...which is 60 percent of the Vigo County School Corporation. It's a really big deal...we're grateful to our community," Jane Nichols, Executive Director of the Vigo County Foundation said.
Organizers say the money will help enrich the education of students.
