As part of The Bowling Foundation's continuing effort to help enhance the lives of others through the sport of bowling, the foundation has awarded six grants in the form of mobile bowling equipment to schools and organizations across the country.
The Mobile Bowling Equipment program annually helps schools, parks and recreation departments, youth groups, disabled and disadvantage service groups and other organizations teach students the lifelong sport of bowling though education, instruction, fitness and fun.
The grants are awarded in the form of bowling kits (value $1,200 each) which includes six carpeted bowling lanes, rubberized balls and pins and instructional DVDs to assist coaches and teachers in introducing and instructing the game.  
The 2014 grants went to six schools, four in Louisiana, and one each in Florida and Maryland.
