Polk Vocational Services (PVS), a not-for-profit corporation serving Polk and Rutherford County residents with developmental disabilities, was awarded $17,000.00 grant from the Polk County Community Foundation (PCCF) for the purchase of new ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) approved cafeteria furniture. PVS recently revamped their dining area to update the appearance and make it more accessible for all employees.

“This generous grant allowing us to purchase new ADA approved furniture allows us to continue in our mission to improve lives and instill pride in our community,” stated Toisan Eaves, director of program services at PVS.

The vision of the PCCF is to advance philanthropy and improve the quality of life for all citizens in Polk County and the surrounding area.
