Family League of Baltimore has teamed up with The Annie E. Casey Foundation and The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to grant funds to organizations providing summer activities and programs for Baltimore City youth.  The grants will support programs that focus on such areas as reading, science, technology, engineering or math, as well as programs serving children with disabilities. The summer programs must be geared primarily towards youth in low-income families living within the city.
