Helping hand from Hamburger Helper

Two Anniston groups are seeking public support for their grant proposals through the folks at Hamburger Helper.

The familiar dinnertime company is awarding $100,000 to projects around the country. Anniston High School has submitted a proposal for $6,000 to help restock the library, where about 9,000 volumes were destroyed by a May 2006 fire. Another group, Independent Reading/Counseling and School Children, is asking for $6,000 to refurbish a kitchen where they feed disabled children.

Visitors to the Web site can comment about the projects, and community support counts toward selecting which proposals to fund. The awards will be announced in two waves, on Nov. 15 and May 15.
