Lower Elementary Students In Need Benefit Before Winter Arrives
Grinnell, IA, November 18th, 2016: The annual proceeds from the Dr. Kevin W. Sterk Lower Elementary Student Needs Endowment were used to fulfill some basic necessities. Greater Poweshiek Community Foundation staff gathered from the Fairview and Bailey Park Elementary principals a list of items they had observed as student needs.
Ginger Sterk and Nicole Brua-Behrens shopped the list using earnings from the Sterk Endowment which is funded by local donors. This year, shoe hero shoes, boots, coats, snow pants, leggings, sweat shirts and pants were purchased and delivered to the schools.
