Grant goes to local church
Hope Covenant Church, located in El Dorado, is the recipient of a $1,000 Prairie Port Fund grant. Their project is “Butler Mission Week, which is a week long effort to serve El Dorado and the surrounding area, bringing families together to volunteer and help other families in need
At the end of the week they will host a free neighborhood block party. Families are invited to come enjoy food, music and games. The goal of this week is to get people out to love on the community and provide services for those in need. Their first event was in July 2018 and over 100 people volunteered for service projects during the week long event.
Each year, the Prairie Port Selection Committee accepts applications for grants to groups needing funds to start or support events in the El Dorado community.
Prairie Port Festival Fund is one of several funds administered by El Dorado Community Foundation. ECF was established in March 2014 and is an affiliate of the Central Kansas Community Foundation, located in Newton.
