The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce has given $35,000 in grants to four nonprofit groups: The Boys and Girls Club of Mercer County, the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, Eden Autism Services, and Minding Our Business.
The grants, made through the chamber’s community development fund, will support the nonprofit’s programs. The Boys and Girls Club will use the money for its Career Launch Readiness Teen program to help low-income teens prepare for high school graduation. The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen will use the money to support its adult education program. Eden Autism Services will fund a program to help adults with autism start micro-businesses. Minding Our Business, an arm of Rider University’s college of business administration, will fund a summer entrepreneurship training program for urban youth.
