H.E.L.P., the Charity announced that in its first 24 months of existence, it has already issued 185 awards of grants totaling $31,091.92.
Pictured is Culver High Baseball head coach Shea Little, assistant coaches & team members receiving a H.E.L.P., the Charity Grant check for $200.00 cash & $200.00 in Matching Food Grant Voucher from Madras Figaro’s Pizza owner Tom Hansen. Little submitted the grant application to provide much needed equipment & supplies for assistant coaches & team members. Little said “As you are aware, school funds have been dwindling & our sports programs have suffered financially”.
Figaro’s West Salem has been able to honor several H.E.L. P. Grant Applications over the past year due to the continuous support of the community through purchases made at Figaro’s. On April 9th, Brenda Wylie, owner of Figaro’s West Salem proudly presented a check for $1,000, to Mr. Rundquist, the Band Teacher at Walker Middle School. While his students would like to see him use the funds to purchase pizza, Mr. Rundquist has plans to replace some outdated equipment.
