The PPL Foundation said Wednesday that it has awarded $51,000 in grants to Lancaster County nonprofits, including $25,000 to The Common Wheel.

The Common Wheel will use its grant to fund “Earn-A-Bike” training for six groups of children. Children who complete the five-week class in bicycle maintenance and safety receive a free bike.

Two of the six groups will be for girls.

Other Lancaster County recipients are: Factory Ministries ($5,000), Fulton Theatre ($3,000), Lancaster-Lebanon Habitat for Humanity ($5,000), Milagro House ($7,000), Mom’s House ($5,000) and Lancaster Public Library ($1,000 plus 1,500 books to be given to children).
