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.
