Foundation grant restores teen nights



Vancouver — The Community Foundation for Southwest Washington has given the Parks Foundation of Clark County $25,000 through its Community Giving Fund.

The grant will restore the Teen Late Night Program on Friday evenings at both Marshall and Firstenburg Community Centers for the 2012-2013 school year. Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation plans for the program to be back up and running by mid-October.

Marshall Center’s “SPOT” and the Firstenburg “Zone” provide teens safe places to hang out and make friends. They offer board and video games, pool tables, ping-pong, movies, open gym and more.

Teen Late Night is free to all middle and high school age students. Identification is required. Visit after Monday for updated information.

The Parks Foundation raises and administers funds through public and private partnerships for parks, trails, and recreational programs throughout Clark County. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation and all gifts are tax-deductible. Learn more at
