Karma for Cara Foundation awards microgrants to youth 18 years of age & younger who spearhead exceptional service projects in their communities. Microgrant recipient Eli (17) from TN organized the building of a new pavilion and wheelchair ramp at the McBurg Community Center. The center was built in 1906, so it was in need of repairs. Many live music events, workout classes, cooking classes, and children’s events were held at the center prior to COVID, and Eli noticed that the wheelchair ramp was rotting and uneven. In addition to repairing the ramp, he planned to build a new pavilion over the picnic tables to provide shade and shelter for children playing on the playground and parents watching the children.
