Six youth-related organizations received checks of slightly more than $110 each at this week's Springfield Township trustees meeting.
The payment was in recognition of the work volunteers from the groups did during the township's Independence Day fireworks celebration last month.
Gary Leasure, of the township park advisory board, said the money came from proceeds or the sale of soft drinks and other items.
The groups that received the checks are the parents' groups from Dorr and Holloway elementary schools, the township's SHAPE program, the Springfield Local Schools' JROTC program, and its band and academic boosters' organization.
