GROW South Dakota Pays-It-Forward to the Groton Baseball/Softball Program
Monday, October 24, 2016
Providing recreational opportunities helps build communities in many ways. It develops personal fitness as well as team-building, competition, and cooperation skills. The Groton Youth Baseball/Softball Program supports many age levels in pursuing the national pastime. The Baseball/Softball Program is a recipient of a donation from GROW South Dakota’s Pay-It-Forward initiative.
GROW South Dakota has been helping communities for fifty years, and to celebrate that milestone, each staff member and board member has received $50 to donate to a community organization. GROW SD Housing loan officer Brenda Waage donated $50 to the Groton Youth Baseball/Softball Program in honor of her own sons’ participation in the program and in recognition of the contributions the program makes to the community. “Supporting our youth and community pride within our ball program brings the kids and community together to support the game. Our facility is undergoing major updating to become a top notch facility which shows the commitment our community is investing in our kids,” said Waage.
“We value our board members and staff and the passion they have for the communities we serve. This Pay-It-Forward event is a small token of our appreciation toward all of the local organizations that make communities better places to live and work,” said GROW South Dakota CEO Marcia Erickson.
