Longmont Sister Cities receives grant from Philanthropiece
To help fund the new Arapaho Exchange, Philanthropiece awarded a $1000 grant to LSCA! This inaugural exchange will pair local students with students from the Wind River Reservation for 3 days of cultural exchange. The students will create art, share stories and get to know each other. This is the first step to creating a potential Sister City relationship and the first of its kind in the United States.
