Country Living Learning Center Receives Grant Award
Eastern Slope Rural Telephone (ESTech) is pleased to announce that the Country Living Learning Center is an award recipient of the Foundation for Rural Service Community Grant Program. Country Living Learning Center in Hugo is a non-profit organization that provides child care services to Lincoln County and surrounding communities in need of quality child care. The grant will be used to improve technologies throughout the center. Country Living Learning Center will purchase iPads for learning and improved communication with parents, build a technology center within the preschool to prepare for academic readiness, and improve social and emotional development.
The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS), the philanthropic arm of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association, announced the recipients of 20 grants totaling over $89,000 to support projects in communities served by NTCA members nationwide. “FRS is proud to support these projects throughout the country to promote health, safety, education and growth in rural communities,” said FRS Executive Director Pam Becker. “The pandemic has shown us how important access to these vital services is, and these organizations have done tremendous work in their communities.” Eastern Slope is proud to partner with FRS to fund this project.
