Benton County Grant

The Benton County Community Foundation gave a $1,000 community grant to the Benton County R-I School to help fund their Buddy Pack Program. This was only one of several community grants that were awarded to a variety of organizations throughout Benton County.  The next couple of weeks will have the communities of Lincoln and Warsaw also have recipients receive their grant money. Lynn Eckhoff, the Elementary Counselor, applied for the grant late summer and after learning that she was one of the awardees, was excited to have the additional money to help kids in need.  The Buddy Pack Program has been in existence for over seven years, but like other non-profit programs the moneys have been cut with fewer kids being helped each year.  With the additional monies she will be able to expand the program and help more students in the Cole Camp School.  The Benton County Community Foundation is a non-profit organization.  Presenting the check from the Foundations was board Present Suzie Brodersen, Ethan Newman, and Cheryl Petersen board members.
