The A.Z. Wells Foundation announced this week that 16 non profit agencies and hospitals through North Central Washington will receive grants totaling over $900,000 this year. Ray Taylor, secretary of the Foundation's Allocation Committee says recipients include the YMCA, YWCA, Salvation Army, Boy Scouts, Campfire, Wenatchee Valley College and hospitals in Brewster, Chelan, Ephrata, Grand Coulee, Leavenworth, Moses Lake, Omak, Quincy, Tonasket and Wenatchee.
On a side note, Taylor says earlier this year researchers finally were able to find out what A.Z. stood for, Alfred Zechariah.
