Donation boosts scholarship fund

Nikiski Senior Center would like to thank Mr. Scott A. Griffith of XTO Energy for the generous donation for the Thelma McConnell Scholarship Fundraiser 2011. 

This donation of $500 will help us to continue providing scholarship opportunities to graduating Nikiski High School Seniors. This past year we were able to contribute $8,500 to 11 local students to be used for their post high school educational experiences. Generous local contributions and gaming sales generate the funds necessary for this important support effort.

Included with this donation was a second donation in the amount of $1,500 to be used by our Senior Center for fundraising and general operations. With costs rising, (food, gasoline, etc), our center can continue to provide the seniors with services that provide lunch, meals on wheels and medical transportation services.

Mr. Griffith and XTO Energy are to be congratulated for continuing their support of our agency as well as their continued local support in the Nikiski Community. During these trying times, companies that support local non profits is an important funding source.
