Local Foundation awards grant to Olney Hope for Skatepark

Local Foundation awards grant to Olney Hope for Skatepark

June 21 was national skateboard day, and it was the perfect day to receive a grant that would aid with the construction of a skatepark in Olney.

Perry’s Foundation awarded a grant to Olney Hope Inc. on behalf of the Skatepark Advocacy Group led by Shanda Hope and Chris Garcia. Olney Hope and Perry’s Foundation are local 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations with a common goal to build a stronger community. Representatives from the Skatepark Advocacy Group concur that having a local skatepark is a way to bring children and families together. This effort will also increase tourism from the other surrounding communities.

You can help donate to the cause by purchasing t-shirts or by participating in the raffles. Learn more information by visiting the Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/olneytxskatepark/
