AARP Eye Center
AARP awarded Community Challenge grants to four Tennessee organizations for quick-action projects to boost local livability.
The projects must be completed by Nov. 30. They are:
Chattanooga: The ELLA Library is creating a community garden with raised beds to accommodate older gardeners, and Lighthouse Network Services is undertaking a project to help caregivers and their families grow their own food.
Memphis area: The TennGreen Land Conservancy, which works to conserve nature, is improving a trail segment in Ducks Unlimited Park in West Memphis, Arkansas, and adding stone benches for a gathering circle.
Springfield: Robertson County Schools north of Nashville earned a grant to help support the Reading Across Robertson County bus, which provides residents access to library books.
