Southern Tier Tuesdays Grant Award


Southern Tier Tuesdays Grant Award and Interview

You voted to nominate us, then you voted for us to win and it was all worth it. We have been chosen to receive the $2,000 grant award from Southern Tier Tuesdays and Upstate Shredding! We will be appearing on WBNG-TV in an upcoming Around the Tiers segment in May. Due to the current health precautions, we will be taping the interview through Zoom to be aired on one of the Southern Tier Tuesday segments in May.

We are humbled by the enormous response from our supporters through email, Facebook and Instagram. Your efforts have allowed us to participate in this opportunity to receive a grant for general use and be interviewed to tell viewers about us and what we do. We cannot thank you enough for your support.

This is a tough year for most nonprofits and local businesses. We can use all the help we can get. This award could not have come at a better time, as we face a Spring without school field trips on property.

So, thank you for coming through for Friends of Rogers!

Tune in to WBNG-TV on Tuesdays in May to see us, as well as the other May grant recipients! If you do not get WBNG in your area, you can watch it on their website after it airs, and I hope to link to the video in the next newsletter.
