Foundation gives out grant checks
It was smiles all around for recipients and gift representatives of Goessel Community Foundation grants Friday in Goessel. Between the high school girls’ and boys’ basketball games, foundation chair Cindy Wiens said it was a very good feeling to give money back to Goessel that originally came from the sale of the AGAPE Senior Center and other donators.
“We are so happy to award checks to four local groups that are very important in our community,” Wiens said. “It is very exciting to be at the point with our foundation that we can give this money out.”
The Mennonite Heritage and Agricultural Museum, Kinder Haus preschool, and Goessel Public Library received $200 from the foundation. Bethesda Home received $500, earmarked for the senior meals program that used to be part of the AGAPE mission.
“This money will help us maintain a high quality of meal service to Goessel elderly and shut-ins,” Schrag said on Tuesday. “It is great to see how a little vision on part of the foundation group is going to help so many people.”
