Safe Fleet Announces 2019 Anti-bullying Grant Winners

$50,000 Will Be Awarded to Increase Safety and Decrease Bullying

BELTON, MO (June 11, 2019) – Safe Fleet is excited to announce the winners of the 2019 United to End Bullying Grant program.  Forty-seven school districts and community organizations in the US and Canada that presented the best strategies to stop bullying were selected to receive grant funding this year totalling $50,000.

The annual United to End Bullying (UEB) grant program was created in 2015 to fund grassroots anti-bullying efforts in local communities. “Safety is part of everything we do,” says John R. Knox, Chairman and CEO of Safe Fleet. “This grant program is an important part of our commitment to safety in our communities, enabling local organizations to inspire kindness and equip children and adults with the knowledge and tools to end bullying.”

“We received so many deserving grant applications this year”, said Lisa Radesco, UEB Coordinator for Safe Fleet’s Nesconset, NY location. “It was really tough to select the list of winners.”

Each grant winner will be contacted over the next several weeks with details on the amount of funding granted and how to collect their award. To find out more about Safe Fleet’s United to End Bullying program visit www.unitedtoendbullying.com.
