The Allegany County Area Foundation has released its latest round of grants, and it's going to a bunch of people who really need it.
The foundation has awarded $1,500 to the Cuba Friends of Architecture, $600 to Leadership Allegany, and $700 to the Salvation Army Wellsville Corps, reports the Democrat and Chronicle.

"We can usually be flexible like this on timing, and we're glad to be able to help these organizations that do so much good in the county."
