LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Subaru of Indiana Automotive Foundation awarded capital grants totaling more than $110,000 to 14 Indiana nonprofit organizations today.

Food Finders, Tree Lafayette, and Burnett Creek Elementary school were among the local groups honored today.

Brandy Shiflett, a first grade teacher, accepted a grant for Burnett Creek Elementary School. The $2,476.40 grant will be used to purchase calm down kits for every classroom in the school.

Shiflett said she is thankful SIA sees the importance of teaching children how to self regulate their emotions through the use of the kits.

“I think it's pretty important that we are seeing, in our community, that there are other places besides the education world that see that this is important.” Shiflett said.

Nick Seager, a STEM Coordinator, accepted a $14,894.83 grant on behalf of Clinton Prairie School Corporation's ESports teams.

Seager says the grant will be used to purchase computers, gaming equipment, and furniture for gaming rooms.

The SIA Foundation awards grants twice annually to groups seeking up to $15,000 in capital funding for arts, culture, health and education projects.
