The Foundation’s grant will support books for the Head Start programs in Rice and Stafford Counties, as well as support for children’s television programming.
“We are thankful for the continued generosity of the South Central Kansas Community Foundation” said Larry Calvery, Smoky Hills Public Television General Manager. “Nothing makes us more proud than seeing smiles on children’s faces and that is exactly what this grant will do. Educating these young kids is an important part of what we do here at Smoky Hills Public Television.”
Smoky Hills Public Television serves 71 counties in central and western Kansas and has been named the Kansas Association of Broadcasters Non-Metro Station of the Year.
The South Central Kansas Community Foundation was founded on September 26 1994, to work toward the mission of “Assuring a Bright Future for South Central Kansas.” The Foundation is a permanent source of charitable assets to meet both emerging and existing needs of the local communities in Barber, Comanche, Kingman, Kiowa, Pratt, Rice, and Stafford counties.
