The Greenway Area Community Fund Advisory Committee awarded a $1,000 grant to the Itasca Ski and Outing Club. The funds will be used to purchase new ski jumping equipment for junior jumpers and should be available for the 2020-2021 winter season. The grant will make this sport more accessible for families with limited financial means.

Local Programs with a Rich History
Board member Bob Lawson continued, “The Greenway Area Community Fund Advisory Committee is pleased to be able to support this local program that has been active and has had a rich history for many years. Supporting youth activities is part of our mission, and we hope this grant will help the Itasca Ski and Outing Club continue to have a positive impact on area jumpers.”
Casey Venema, Committee Chair, stated, “We would not be able to award these grants without the support from so many individuals and businesses who stepped up to help us. It’s been overwhelming, and we really are grateful. Our plan is to continue to grow the Community Fund so we can award even more grants in the future.”
Lawson added, “We want our children and grandchildren to have great memories when they look back and remember what it was like growing up in Greenway.”
