I pray to God that they get those grants because we really do need those new sidewalks.

I think prayer is a good thing...but praying for sidwalks? How about this idea, if you want new sidewalks for your community get off your duff, organize helpers and WORK to get the sidewalks.
It could be talking to politicians, doing a carwash, or even doing the labor with volunteers to build them. Praying for something is ok, but if you really want something you should be willing to work for it.

Maybe we could sell small furry rodents to Haitian immigrants as a fundraising method...

What's wrong with the current sidewalks? If they do not have handicapped access, then upgrade to that point. Unless the sidewalks are crumbling, don't put money into them. Otherwise, I may start driving on the sidewalks as they will certainly be smoother than the road.
