Anti-Bullying Grant from U.S. Bank

Greg Dunbar, U.S. Bank District Manager, center, presents a $5,000 check to Friends of the Astoria Armory President Mike Davies, left, and Past President Bruce Jones, right, to support the armory’s anti-bullying and other programs for youth and adults.” The anti-bullying program helps participants gain coping skills and self-esteem in a creative format,” Jones said. “Through discussion groups and class formats, youth learn to handle bullies and notify responsible adults of bullying behavior. This grant will help us continue hosting the program, and grow it to include other activities for those who are not comfortable in discussion groups or class formats.”
