Milo’s awards education grants in county

Posted

Milo’s Hamburgers recently presented five $1,000 grants to schools and organizations in Walker County.

The grants were presented the last week of January from the Milo’s Little Something Extra Foundation that awards grants to schools and other educational organizations across the state.

Grant recipients will use their funding in a number of ways.

T.R. Simmons Elementary School will be providing technology upgrades in their classrooms. The Chamber of Commerce of Walker County funded the annual Groundhog Job Shadow Day. Valley Jr. High School will create an outdoor courtyard for students to read and study. Jasper High School will help send juniors and seniors to tour colleges through the Jasper College Bound Program.

The Secret Pantry organization will purchase toiletry items and other goods that will go to schools for students in need.

“We are honored and excited to be getting more deeply involved with organizations that have local purposes,” Milo’s CEO Tom Dekle said. “We believe in the value of hard work, leadership and helping our communities become better places. By partnering with the people that do this best, we are convinced we can make a bigger difference together.”
