Stockgrowers support Faith School fundraiser
December 17, 2010
The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association is one of several individuals and organizations to take part in a fundraiser for the Faith School System.
The Pepsi Company provides a program called Pepsi Refresh in an effort to refresh the world. The public submits ideas that are voted on by the public. Each person can vote each day and the ideas with the most votes wins. The winner then receives a grant from $50,000 to $250,000.
According to information received from Faith, their school has been condemned and the children have been having classes in modular units for several years. Students have to walk from one unit to another for classes in all kinds of weather.
Their goals are to build enclosed hallways between buildings, relocate the current playground and provide improved parking and landscaping.
Faith is in the running for the $250,000 grant. All votes must be submitted before the end of December. To vote for this school, visit http://faith.k12.sd.us.
Stockgrowers Association past President Rick Fox said, “This is a very good cause and anything we can do to help the school would be a good way to ‘refresh’ one of our Rural Communities.”
