The Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation was granted with a 20,000 dollar donation from the Alliance Beverage Distributing Company today.

The Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation is one of the seven charities the Alliance Beverage Distributing Company has chosen to support through their Pioneer Classic Benefit Fund.

The Christine-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation was set up to help enrich the lives of local children, whether its through sports, arts or after school programs.

John Green says it won't be long before they start taking applications for grants from the community.
